Your Named GP
Whilst every patient is registered with Cholmley Gardens Surgery, the practice is now required by the government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.
Patients will be informed of their named accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice.
If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the practice. If you would then like to change your named accountable GP, please inform Reception who will gladly do this for you.
Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any other doctor in the practice.
For patients aged 75 and over the named accountable GP is responsible for working with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multi-disciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient and ensuring that these patients have access to an annual health check.
