Named GP for all patients

Accountable / Named GP for All Patients

From 1 April 2015, practices are required under the contract to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children).  

The named accountable GP for all patients will be Dr James Thompson.

Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not always be available and, if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.

However, 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.  

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