Named accountable GP for all patients

As part of a new contractual requirement all patients registered at a GP practice must be allocated a named accountable GP. 

The named accountable GP will take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP).

All patients (including children) are allocated a named GP – you may be informed of who this is at your next visit, or you can ask a receptionist at any time. 

Please note THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN ONLY SEE YOUR NAMED GP. You may continue to see any GP at the surgery.  If you wish to change your named GP then please let us know and we will make reasonable efforts to accomodate your request. Your named GP may change during any long term leave (such as maternity).
