Named Accountable GP
From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a “named accountable GP”. This GP has responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required, based on the GP’s clinical judgement.
If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
Please inform us if you wish to change your “named accountable GP”.
Friends and Family Test
From 1 December 2014, if you visit our GP surgery you will be asked about whether or not you would recommend our surgery to your family and friends, if they need similar treatment or care. For more info Click here
