Named accountable GP & Named accountable GP over 75
All practices are required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all their patients (including children) a named accountable GP who will have overall responsibility for their care and support.
Having a named GP does not mean you can only see that particular GP. Patients will be informed of their named accountable GP when the register with the practice. If you wish to be told the name of your Accountable GP, please contact reception who can give you more information.
