Accountable / Named GP
Posted: 30 July 2015
From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. This is an administrative exercise in order that patients can have a named responsible GP should they require them. Your named accountable GP will be the named doctor you are registered with. If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information. If you need input from a variety of health professionals, then you can discuss these with the named GP if you wish. Alternatively you can discuss these with any of the other doctors. Those of you whom receive regular repeat medications will have your named GP printed on the white repeat medication slip. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
