From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. This named accountable GP has responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required, based on the GP’s clinical judgement.
We have made every effort to make all patients aware of whom their named accountable GP is. If however you are unsure please ask the receptionists when you next contact or visit the practice.
Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any other doctor in the practice as you normally do. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor. Please note all our GP’s have access to your medical record.
If any patient expresses a preference to which GP they have been allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Please note: if your named accountable GP is Dr A N Patel, these patients will transfer to Dr N Z Malik from 01 April 2016 when Dr Patel retires.
