Named Accountable GP at Clapham Park Group Practice
We would like to remind all our patients that they have been allocated a named accountable GP, otherwise known as a “usual GP”.
Your usual GP, or their deputy in their absence, is responsible for overseeing the coordination of your care and the upkeep of your medical record. This role includes
ensuring any necessary reviews are up to date, signing repeat prescriptions, checking results and acting on any correspondence from outside the practice, for example, from hospitals, social care or community care.
This does not mean that patients have to see their usual GP when they book an appointment but we encourage patients, especially those with long term conditions, to book appointments with their usual GP whenever this is possible as we believe that continuity of care is beneficial for both patients and doctors.
If you are unsure who your usual GP is please ask at reception when you are next at the surgery.
Patients living outside the practice catchment area
Clapham Park Group Practice does not currently accept new registrations from patients who live outside our catchment area. If you live outside our catchment area and need to register with a GP, please visit the NHS choices website to find a surgery near you.
If you are moving to a new home outside our catchment area, you may wish to remain registered with us. This is sometimes the case for patients who only move a short distance outside our catchment area. If this is the case, please:
- Contact the practice to let us know you are moving home and tell us your new address.
- Make it clear whether or not you would like to request to remain registered at Clapham Park Group Practice.
- Please also make it clear whether this request is just for you or for all members of your family (where applicable).
Your requests will be considered by your usual GP in line with the “Choice of GP practice guidance” issued by NHS England on 11 November 2014. We will then write to you to inform you of our decision. You will only be allowed to remain registered with us when living outside our catchment area if your GP is confident that this is clinically appropriate. You will have 30 days to register with a new GP if we feel it is not appropriate to keep you on our patient list.
Please note that if you are registered with us while living outside our catchment area you will not be eligible for home visits. You may be asked to re-register with a local GP at any time in the future should your personal circumstances change. Otherwise you will have access to all the services we offer.
