What is the named GP for patients aged 75 and over?
As part of the commitment to more personalised care for more patients with long-term conditions, the NHS have agreed that all patients aged 75 and over will have a named accountable GP.
Your named GP will ensure that you receive the best possible level of care and support from our Surgery and will work with other relevant healthcare professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that your care meets your individual needs.
At the moment we are assigning patients to the GP you are registered with or your usual GP. If, however, you wish to change the GP please let the surgery know and your records can be altered. Alternatively at your next routine appointment please let the receptionists know and they can forward your request to the Practice Manager. We are using this method as an aid to inform our patients who are aged 75 and over to engage with us regarding their preference for a "usual GP".
Even though you have been assigned a GP this does not mean you can only book with that GP or prevent you from seeing any Clinician you wish in the Practice.
