Named GP Policy

Accountable/Named GP for all Patients

From the 1st April 2015 the government have added to our NHS contract that all patients should have a named accountable GP. We have now allocated a named accountable GP to all our patients . If you wish to know who your named accountable GP is please contact the Surgery.

The named accountable GP to whom you are allocated will take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services and ensure they are delivered where required to each of their patients. However there is no condition within these regulations for you to see your named GP when you book an appointment at the Surgery, so your overall care will not be affected whichever GP you prefer to see.

If you feel you would like a different GP allocated to you then please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate this.
