Named GP for all Patients
All GP practices are required to inform their patients (including children) of their named accountable GP. This is part of the GMS contract change for 2015 – 2016 that was agreed between the BMA’s General Practitioners Committee and NHS Employers.
The named GP will take lead responsibility for the coordination of all services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required.
Every patient at this practice has been assigned to one of the GP Partners, however this assignment in no way effects your choice of the GP that you may wish to see, or that may be available on the day you require treatment.
It is important to be clear that you do not need to wait and see or speak to your named GP.
Practices are asked to inform patients of their named GP at the first available interaction, so the GP or Nurse may advise you at your next appointment.
Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
