From April 2015 all patients must have a named GP and patients will be informed as to who 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 recognised and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice.
- Ensure that the patient has access to a health check if requested.
If you are unsure about any of the above please contact the surgery reception team.
