Named accountable GP

As part of new contractual requirement for 2015/16 all patients registered at a GP practice have been allocated a named accountable GP.

The new contract requires the named accountable GP to be responsible for  the co-ordination of all the appropriate services required and ensure they are delivered to each patient when required.

However this does not mean that they will be the only GP or Clinician who will provide this care this responsibility will be carried out within the opening hours of the practice. All patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with our current services.

The practice will not be writing to patients to inform of named GP but will let patients know at the next appropriate interaction. Patients are welcome to ask who you have been allocated to -please ask the reception staff. If a patient requests a different GP reasonable effort will be made to accommodate their preference please ask to speak to the practice manager in this case.

All new patients will be given the name of their allocated GP at registration .

Patients on repeat prescription your named GP is on your re- order form .
