Named GP for all patients

From 1st April 2015 onwards Practices are required, under the GMS contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children.

It is important that you are aware that this is purely an administrative exercise and does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice.

We have now allocated all patients to a named GP.  New patients registering from 1st April 2015 onwards will be allocated within 21 days of registration.

If you were registered with us before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions service provision you will have already been allocated a named accountable GP and notified in writing – this named GP will remain the same and will not change.

Should you express a wish to change your named GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes. Please write to the Practice Manager requesting the change.

It is the Practices responsibility to notify you by 31st June 2016 of your named accountable GP. Initially we will attempt to do this on an opportunistic basis during your next visit or call to the Practice and we will record that you have been notified. If by early May 2016 we have not informed you, we will text, email or write to you.
