Named Accountable GP

  • NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP

The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP by 30th June 2015.

If you are over 75 years old you will have already been issued with the name of your named GP by letter.

Individual patients aged under 75 years will be informed of their named accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice.

For convenience if you have a medical card your accountable GP will be the named doctor you are registered with.

The practice does keep a record of your registered (accountable) GP. If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery (From 30th June 2015).  

Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.

Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.

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.
