Named Accountable GP From 1 April 2015, practices were required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children. All patients registered before 1 April 2015 have been allocated a GP . All new patients registering after 1 April 2015 are informed about their named GP at registration. Your doctor , or the reception staff, can always confirm who your named, accountable GP is. Should you express a wish for this to be changed to another GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes. Please be aware that this does not affect your ability to make an appointment with any of the GPs in the practice of your choosing.
