As part of the commitment to more personalised care for patients, NHS Employers and the General Practitioners Committee of the British Medical Association have agreed that all patients will have a named accountable GP. The ‘named’ GP will: -
- Take lead responsibility for ensuring that all appropriate services required under the contract with the practice are delivered to you
- Where required, based on the professional judgement of the ‘named’ GP, work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multidisciplinary care package that meets your needs.
- Ensure that your physical and psychological needs are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice
All patients at this practice have been allocated a named GP (this is your registered GP) who is responsible for your overall care. Should you wish to know who this is please ask the receptionist. If you have a preference as to who this is we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
