Named Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015 onwards Practices are required, under the GMS contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children.

This does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice.
New patients registering from 1st April 2015 onwards will be allocated at point of registration but of note we must contractually do this within 21 days of registration.

If you were registered with us before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions service provision you will have already been allocated a named accountable GP and notified in writing – this named GP will remain the same and will not change.

Should you express a wish to change your named GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes. Please write to the Practice Manager requesting the change.
Your named GP appears on any prescription you receive from the surgery.


Please feel free to contact the Reception Team on 01384 884031 to find out who your Named Accountable GP is.
