Named GP

You may be aware that from April 2015 all practices are required to provide all of their patients with a Named Accountable GP. This GP has overall responsibility for the care and support provided to those patients by their surgery team. The role is predominantly an administrative one to ensure effective delivery of services when needed and does not affect who you see for your care.

For all patients at Eyam Surgery the named GP will be Dr Goodwin. This is because Dr Goodwin is the only GP that works full time and will, therefore, be in the best position to take administrative responsibility for patient care.

You do not need to take any further action. We expect you to continue to see the GPs and nursing staff that you normally see. If you have any questions about this matter please speak to Kim, the Practice Manager, on 01433 630836 extension 2. You can also contact the practice via our website, or, indeed speak to the GP you usually see the next time you have an appointment with them.
