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.
