Named accountable GP

As part of a new contractual requirement for 2015-16, all patients registered at a GP practice are allocated a named accountable GP.

 

What does 'accountable' mean?

The new contract requires the named accountable GP to be responsible for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each patient where required. However, this does not mean that they will be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient. These responsibilities will be carried out within the opening hours of the Practice and do not change the way you currently access care outside these hours.

 

Will GP practices write to patients to inform them of their named GP?

No. However, we will endeavour to inform patients of their named GP on request.

 

Can patients choose their own named GP?

Patients will be allocated a named GP by the Practice

 

Do patients have to see their named GP when they book an appointment?

No. Patients can, and should, feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements. If their preferred choice of GP or nurse is not available, an alternative will be offered. As all patients have an electronic medical record this ensures that all clinicians in the Practice have access to the most accurate and up to date information.
