As part of the commitment to more personalised care for NHS patients, the General Practitioners Committee of the British Medical Association have agreed a contractual change for GP Services requiring all patients to have a named accountable GP by 30th June 2015.
The ‘named’ GP will: -
• Take responsibility for ensuring that all appropriate care services required under the contract with the practice are delivered to you
• Ensure that your care needs are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice.
Pelham Medical Group will ensure that there is a named accountable GP assigned to each patient. New patients will be allocated a GP at the time of registration. 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.
