Named And Accountable GP

NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP


Under the terms of the latest GP contract, the Practice is required to allocate all patients a “named and accountable GP”. This is purely an administrative exercise as all of you will already have a named GP.


It is not essential that you see your "Accountable or usual GP" at all times, but we would encourage you to form alliances with at least two GPs within the Practice which will allow more flexibility when booking an appointment.   It is accepted however, that with the drop in clinic arrangements where the clinics are run by our Nurse Practitioner and our clinical Pharmacist that this is not always possible.

 

If you wish to know who your named GP is, kindly ask at reception and the practice staff will be happy to let you know.   


Please note that your named GP will not be available at all times and if your need is urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
