Named Accountable GP

All surgeries are required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract (2015 to 2016) to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.

Castlefields Surgery operates on a personal list basis therefore patients will be familiar with having a named accountable GP.

For convenience if you have a medical card your named accountable GP will be the named doctor you are registered with.  Patients registering over the past couple of years may not have received a medical card as these are no longer routinely sent out when registering with a new GP.  

The surgery keeps a record of your registered accountable GP and you will have been informed who that is when registering with the surgery.  There is no need to contact the surgery for this information.

If you need input from a variety of health professions, your registered accountable GP will be responsible for ensuring the oversight of your care.
