As part of the commitment to a more personalised care for patients, NHS Employers and the General Practitioners Committee of the British Medical Association have agreed that all patients will have a named accountable GP.
The 'Named GP' will:
- Take lead responsibility for ensuring that all the appropriate services required under the contract with the practice are delivered to you
- Were required, based on the professional judgement of the 'named GP' work with the relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multidisciplinary care package that meets your needs
- Ensure that your physical and psychological needs are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice
- Ensure that the patients over 75 years of the age have access to a health check if requested, which is already a requirement of the GP contract regulations
Dr K R Mangarai is the named accountable GP assigned to each patient.
Your named accountable GP will be the same as your registered GP, however this does not affect your ability to see any GP of your choice as you currently do.
