Named accountable GP

From 1 April 2015 we are contractually required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children).

Individual patients will be informed of their named GP at an appropriate interaction with us.

If a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, we will accommodate this request.  

In addition, for patients aged 75 and over, as required by the 2014/15 GMS contract agreement the named accountable GP will also: work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multi-disciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient, ensure that these patients have access to a health check

Please note: In reality having a named GP makes little difference to the care patients receive on a day to day basis. Patients can see any GP, even if it is not the GP they have been allocated
