Named Accountable GP

The Department of Health have introduced a new initiative whereby GP Surgeries are required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients including children.

Please note that Named Accountable GPs are responsible for patient’s overall care at the Surgery but they are not required to deliver all patient’s care. Their role is to take lead responsibility for co-ordinating services to patients.

If you or children have been assigned a GP by the Surgery this will usually be the GP you see most frequently. It will not necessarily be the GP named on your medical card. If you wish to change your Named Accountable GP please let us know.
