As of 1 April 2015, all GP practices are required to inform patients of their named accountable GP. If your surname begins with A – M your named GP will be Dr Pardhan. If your surname begins with N – Z your named GP will be Dr Thamby. Do please note however that you will still be able to able to see either doctor; this new requirement will not deprive you of this choice.
What does this mean to you?
You are unlikely to see any notable change in the way care is delivered to you by the practice as this is just a formalisation of our current process.
You should continue to book appointments with the practice in the same way, with the GP of your choice. We would encourage you to always book with a ‘usual’ GP where available to ensure continuity of care.
Please note that although our GPs work alongside other health and social Care professionals to ensure you receive the best possible care, your named accountable GP will not be responsible for the care provided by any agency other than Kingsthorpe Medical Centre.
