Named Accountable GP
As part of a national programme from April 2015 all practices are required to provide their patients with a named accountable GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them.
At Gt Eccleston Health Centre, patients have been allocated a named GP (also called their usual GP) and they will be the GP with this responsibility. If you wish to know who your named GP is please ask a member of staff.
Having a named GP does not commit you to seeing that GP only. We work as a team at the Health centre and while we would encourage you to see the same GP for ongoing problems to maintain continuity, you are welcome to see any GP of your choice
