Named GP for ALL patients
Please contact Reception to enquire who your named GP is - Tel: 01580 880790
From the 1st April 2015, all practices are required to inform ALL patients of their named accountable GP. This is part of the GMS contract change for 2015 - 2016 that was agreed between BMA's General Practitioners Committee and NHS Employers.
It means that practices will need to ensure that each patient on their practice list is assigned a named, accountable GP.
New patients will be informed to 'whom they are registered'.
The named GP will not take on 24 hour responsibility for the patient or make a change to their working hours, the requirement does not imply availability for GPs throughout the working week. The named GP cannot be the only GP to care for that patient.
