NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP
The NHS requires that all patients, including babies and children, should have a "Named Accountable GP"who will take responsibility for the co-ordination of patient care and treatment, and, based on their clinical judgement, will ensure that services are delivered to each patient when required. Patients remain free to see any GP of your choice, but, as your Named Accountable GP can't be available all the time, you will continue to be supported by other GPs and clinicians in the practice.
All patients have been informed of their Named Accountable GP by various means including:
We will inform you of your Named Accountable GP by various means including:
- During a GP or Practice Nurse consultation
- On registering as a new patient of the practice
- On a repeat prescription

Please let us know if you would like to have a different Named GP; we will try to meet your preference, but it may not always be possible, in which case we will explain the reason.
