Named Accountable GP
From 1st April 2015 onwards Practices are required, under the GP contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children. This GP is responsible for the patients’ overall care. However, patients can still book appointments or telephone consultations with any GP in the practice.
New patients registering from 1st April 2015 onwards will be informed of their named GP at the point of registration. If you would like your GP to be a specific doctor we will do our best to accommodate you.
If you were registered with us before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions service provision you will have already been allocated a named accountable GP and notified in writing – this named GP will remain the same and will not change.
Should you express a wish to change your named GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes. Please contact the surgery requesting the change.
You can find the name of allocated GP on your repeat prescription request slip. If you do not have a repeat prescription and wish to know who is your allocated GP please ask next time you visit the surgery.
