Named, allocated GP


Since 1st April 2015 the national GP contract was changed to add the requirement that all patients should have their own named, accountable GP.

The named GP is largely a role of oversight, with the requirements being introduced to reassure patients they have one GP within the practice who is responsible for ensuring that this work is carried out on their behalf.

However, there is no condition for patients to see their named GP when they have an appointment at the practice, they can chose to see who they wish as before.  Patients can also ask for their named GP to be changed should they wish.

To find out who your named GP is please call the practice on 015242 61202.
