Named GP

The practice is required to allocate all patients with a named accountable GP under the GP contract.

The contract requires the named accountable GP to take responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure that they are delivered to each of their patients (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP).

Overall responsibility for patient care continues to be “practice based”. The named GP role is predominantly to oversee and assure they have one GP within the Practice who is responsible for ensuring work is carried out on their behalf.

If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please let us know.
