Named accountable GP for all patients
From 1 April 2015, practices are required under the contract to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children) who is responsible for patients’ overall care at the practice, patients should contact the practice if they wish to know who this is, and that if they have a preference as to which GP that is, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
The named accountable GP will take lead responsibility for the coordination of all services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgment of the named accountable GP).
Following recent guidance we would like to advise parents that we will need written permission for anyone, other than the person with legal responsibility for the child, to bring that child for treatment to the surgery. This applies to grandparents, child minders etc. Forms are available in reception or on the website parental consent form – please let us know if you are happy for others to act in loco parentis on these occasions by completing a signed agreement which will be kept with your child’s records.
