The Department of Health have introduced a new initiative whereby GP surgeries are required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children.
Please note that Named Accountable GPs are responsible for patients’ overall care at the surgery, but they are not required to deliver all patients’ care. Their role is to take lead responsibility for co-ordinating services to patients.
If you (or your children) have been assigned a GP by the surgery, this will usually be the GP you see most frequently. It will not necessarily be the GP named on your medical card. If you wish to change your Named Accountable GP, please let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
Please note that having a Named Accountable GP isn’t mandatory, so if you do not wish to nominate a GP or have one allocated to you by the surgery, please let a member of practice staff know.
