Named Accountable GP
From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.
All our patients are registered under The Limes Medical Centre as a pooled list. For convenience your named accountable GP will be your named usual GP.
If you wish to be told the name of your accountable/usual GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery
Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.
Having a named/usual GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the Practice. Your named/usual GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
Statement from The Limes Medical Centre: We aim to provide the very best care for our patients and are disappointed that following our recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection, some of the policies and procedures at the practice have been found to be below the required standards. While the CQC report recognises the work the practice has done to improve the quality of care for our patients, particularly those with long term conditions, there are further improvements we need to make for them. Our team at the practice is committed to making the necessary improvements for our patients and have already started to address the areas required and improve our policies and procedures in order to support the best possible patient care.
