From the 1st April 2015 practices are required under their contract to allocate a named GP to ALL patients including children. All patients at the surgery have been allocated a named GP who is responsible for generally over seeing your medical care but for your day to day consultations if your named GP is not available you can continue to see any Doctor within the practice.
As a patient you do not have to take any further action but if you have any queries regarding this please do not hesitate to contact the Practice Manager to discuss this further.
If you would like to know who your allocated GP is please ask at Reception
All patients aged over 75 are allocated a named GP by our Surgery. This GP will be responsible for the oversight and co-ordination of your care at the Practice. They will
- Ensure that services are delivered to you,
- Work with health and social care professionals to deliver care to meet your needs
- Ensure that your needs are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinicians in the practice
- Ensure that you have access to a health check if you request one
You may not be able to see your named GP “on the day”, but their colleagues will be available. Your named GP will take an overview of your care.
Initially, we will appoint a named GP for you based on the Doctor you usually see. You are free to choose who your named GP will be if you wish to change.
Patients will be informed of this by messages on prescriptions, on this website or at consultations at the surgery.
Your Named GP at North Chelmsford NHS Healthcare Centre is Dr Abidhar Prasad
