Named Accountable GP
When registering at this practice all patients are allocated to one of the 2 GP partners. The GP partner you are allocated to is assigned as your named accountable GP. This is for the purpose of our clinical records and to allocate overall responsibility of your care at this practice. The process of allocating to a GP partner has always been used here; some practices choose to register patients as a group practice rather than to an individual GP.
Ellenbrook Medical Centre is a 2 partner practice and even though you have been allocated a GP you can choose to see whichever GP you wish routinely. If you ask to see a GP urgently you will see whichever GP is on call for that session.
Allocation of named accountable GP is slightly different for patients aged 75yrs+ and those patients on a tailored health programme. These patients can expect to receive an individual letter outlining their allocated GP.
If you would like to find out who your allocated GP is or wish to discuss your allocated GP please do so at your next contact with the practice or contact us on 0161 703 9091.
