From March 2015 we are obligied under the terms of our NHS contract to let all our patients know who their "accountable" GP is.
For Knowle Green Medical this is your "usual" GP. Your usual GP may not be the GP you see depending on availability or your personal choice.
If you wish to be advised of your usual GP we are able to text this information to you - provided we hold your mobile number, or you can call and ask one of the Reception team on 01784 883654 (after 2pm each week day) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively ask one of the team here when you are next in the surgery.
New patients registering with us will be advised of their usual GP at the time of registration.
In addition, for patients aged 75 and over, as required by the 2014-15 GMS Contract agreement and which remains unchanged, the named accountable GP will also:
- Work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multi-disciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient.
- Ensure these patients have access to a health check as set out in section 7.9 of the GMS contract regulations.
