Named GP for 75s and over, named accountable GP for all patients

NAMED GP FOR PATIENTS AGED 75 YEARS AND OVER

The NHS has introduced a new service for people who are 75 years old and over.

As part of this service, all practices are required to provide patients 75 years old and over with

a named GP, with the aim of ensuring that there is a GP in the practice who can offer overall

responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides for you. They may also work with

other health care professionals to ensure that you have a co-ordinated package of care.

 

Whilst this doctor has been designated as having overall responsibility for care and support that our surgery provides for you, this does not prevent you from seeing any other GP or clinician in the practice as you currently do.

 

Your GP of choice or your named GP will not always be available and your care will be provided by

an available GP or other clinician as necessary.

 

If you are not in contact with the practice on a regular basis, we would also like to take this

opportunity of inviting you for a health check which you can arrange by contacting our reception

team via phone or over the desk.

 

You do not need to take any further action, but we will be happy to help you if you have any

questions by contacting us on our surgery phone number.

 

NAMED GP FOR ALL PATIENTS

 

All practices are required to provide all patients with a named GP who is responsible for your overall care at the practice. Patients should contact the practice if they wish to know who this is, and if they have a preference as to which GP that you are allocated to. the Practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.

Whilst this doctor has been designated as having overall responsibility for care and support that our surgery provides for you, this does not prevent you from seeing any other GP or clinician in the practice as you currently do.
