Named GP For all patients!
From April 2015 all patients must have a named GP and patients will be informed as to whom this GP is.
The responsibilities of the named GP are to:
- Take lead responsibility for ensuring that all appropriate services required are delivered to the patient.
- Where required, work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multidisciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient.
- Ensure that the physical and psychological needs of the patient are recognized and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice.
- Ensure that the patient has access to a health check if requested.
Due to the surgery now having a stable clinical team, we have now re-allocated some patients with a new named GP. If you wish to know or find out more, please ring the surgery. This change will only affect a small number of patients.
