Named Accountable GP
From 1 April 2015 all existing patients have been allocated a named accountable GP. In most cases this is your currently registered GP except where you may already have asked for this to be changed.
All new patients registering after 1 April 2015 will be allocated a named accountable GP within 21 days of registration.
Where any patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request. Where any patient has confirmed they do not want a named accountable GP and we have recorded this in their patient record, the requirement to allocate a named accountable GP does not apply.
The patient's named GP will take lead responsibility for the care and support provided by the practice. This however does not require or prevent you from seeing any GP.
In addition, for patients aged 75 and over, 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
