As part of our commitment to more personalised care all patients’ now have a named accountable GP who is responsible for the co-ordination of all services required and for ensuring delivery. In addition for patients’ aged 75 and over, the named GP will take lead responsibility for ensuring that any services, which may be required, are delivered to each patient appropriately.
The named GP will work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a care package that meets the needs of the patient.
Patients will be informed of their named/ accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice. If you wish to know who your named GP is please contact the practice or ask at Reception when you are next visiting us. If you are a new patient you will be infomed of your named/usual GP through the registration process.
If you would like to change your named GP please phone the practice. When a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing another doctor in the practice, however we recommend seeing the same doctor for ongoing conditions.
Please note that if you request to be seen urgently you will be given an appointment with one of the duty doctors, who may not be your named GP.
