NAMED GP FOR PATIENTS 75 YEARS AND OVER
Are you 75 or over? If so, from 1 April 2014 as part of the practice contractual obligations we have to inform you of your named GP. Please ask at Reception or telephone the surgery to confirm who is your named GP.
Does the requirement mean that patients have to see the named GP when they book an appointment with the practice?
No. Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements.
The responsibilities of the named GP are to:
- Take lead responsibility for ensuring that all appropriate services required under the contract with the practice are delivered to the patient
- Where required, based on the professional judgement of the named GP, work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multidisciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient
- Ensure that the physical and psychological needs of the patient are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice
- Ensure that the patient has access to a health check if requested, which is already a requirement of the GP contract regulations.
