Named Accountable GP

As is required for all GP practices, every patient has a designated “accountable GP”.

This named GP takes responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate and delivery of services for their assigned patients. They will also handle all correspondence received from hospitals and other healthcare services regarding your care, as well as reviewing any repeat medication you have.

Having a named GP does not mean you cannot see any other doctor at the practice. If you need an urgent appointment and your named GP is not available, you may be assigned to another GP for that appointment. You can also request not to see your named GP if you would prefer.

If you are unsure who your accountable GP and would like to know, speak to our reception staff and they will be able to assist.
