Accountable GP

All registered patients must have a named accountable GP.

The named GPs’ responsibilities

The named GP is largely a role of oversight. It reassures patients they have one GP who is responsible for their care.

  • Patients do not need to see their named GP when they book an appointment with the practice.
  • Patients are entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice.
  • The named GP works with relevant health and social care professionals to deliver a multi-disciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient.
  • The named GP will not take on 24 hour responsibility for the patient, or have to change their working hours.
