For the attention of all patients:
It is now a requirement of the NHS Contract for general Practice that all registered patients are to be informed of their Accountable GP. The Accountable GP is largely a role of oversight, with the requirement being introduced to reassure patients they have a named GP within the practice who takes responsibility for ensuring that appropriate processes and standards are in place for the delivery of safe health care.
Due to the other changes to our business, our patients will no longer be registered with a specific named partner, but instead, the registration will simply state you are registered with ‘Ripley Medical Centre’.
Please be informed that your Named Accountable GP will be Dr Sarah Milner, as the Clinical Lead GP for the Practice.
Patients are still entitled to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with current arrangements.
