Named Accountable GP



From 1st April 2015 onwards all Practices are required, under the GMS contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children.


It is standard practice at Blofield Surgery for patients to be allocated to one of the GP Partners when they register at the practice.


It is important that you are aware that this is purely an administrative exercise and does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice.


New patients, registering from 1st April 2015 onwards, will be allocated within 21 days of registration.


If patients were registered with us before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions service provision, they will have already been allocated a named accountable GP and notified in writing – this named GP will remain the same and will not change.


Any patient under the age of 75 is invited to contact the practice if they would like to know who their accountable GP is.
