Named GP

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.
