Accountable named GP and Over 75 Health Check

The practice is required by the Government under the term of the Latest GP contract to allocate a named accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care.

If you have a preference as to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.

If you wish to know which GP has been allocated to you, please ask reception on your next visit. Please do not telephone the practice for this information, our phone lines are very busy and primarily are for patients with urgent needs.

Your named accountable GP will oversee the co­ordination of your care amongst the other health professionals.

The named accountable GP will not take on 24 hour responsibility for your care, your named GP will purely oversee the care that you receive.

Patients are still able to book appointment with any GP at the practice. Patient can express who they would like to see, however, this may not always be possible due to appointment availability with that GP.

If you are 75 year of age, you are entitled to an Over 75 health check.
