ALLOCATION OF AN ACCOUNTABLE GP – WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
All patients in the practice will have an allocated accountable GP who will be responsible for your overall care at the practice. This will normally be your regular GP. If you are unsure who this GP is or have a preference as to which GP this should be please contact the surgery and your records can be amended accordingly.
The accountable GP for patients 75 and over will work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multi-disciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient. Patients 75 and over will have regular health reviews and check ups, either by GP or Practice Nurse depending upon their medical needs.
