Named GP

The Named Accountable GP For All Patients Is: DR S COONEY

 

What is named Accountable GPs' Role?

A named accountable GP takes responsibility for the coordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure that the services are delivered to the patients where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP). Additionally, if a third party requests your GPs information this is the GP name that you would give.

 

Does the requirement mean 24 hour responsibility for patients?

NO

 

The named GP will not:

  • Take on vicarious responsibility for the work of other doctors or health professionals.
  • Take on 24 hour responsibility for the patient or have to change their working hours. The requirement does not imply personal availability for GPs throughout the working week.
  • Be the only GP or clinician who will provide care to that patient.
