Named Accountable GP

All patients now have a named accountable GP who is responsible for patients overall care at the practice.  If you wish to know who your named accountable GP is, please ask at reception.  Please note that although all patients have been allocated a named accountable GP, patients are able to see any GP they like and are not restricted to the GP they have been allocated.

Prescriptions for Patients Travelling Abroad

By Law, the NHS ceases to have responsibility for the medical care of patients when they leave the UK.  People travelling within Europe are advised to carry an authorised European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) at all times and this gives entitlement to reduced cost (and sometimes free) medical treatment.  NB: the EHIC has replaced the E111, which is no longer valid.  Patients are advised to check specific entitlements prior to travel.

  • For patients who will be out of the country for less than 3 months, it is regarded as reasonable to provide sufficient medicines for an existing condition (i.e asthma, diabetes)
  • For patients leaving the country for more than 3 months, they should be aware of the need to register with a local doctor for their continuing medical needs.  The NHS regards it is reasonable for GPs to provide sufficient medication to give patients time to do this.

GPs are not required by their Terms of Service to provide prescriptions for the treatment of a condition that is not present and may arise while the patient is abroad.  Persons who have left the UK, or who are intending to leave the UK, for more than 3 months are not normally allowed to continue to be registered with a practice.

The NHS accepts responsibility for supplying ongoing medication for temporary periods abroad of up to 3 months.  If a person is going to be abroad for more than three months then all the patient is entitled to at NHS expense, is a sufficient supply of his/her regular medication in order to get to their destination, where they should then find an alternative supply of that medication.

GPs have responsibilities in signing prescriptions for patients travelling abroad and may decline to issue if regular monitoring is required.

GPs can be regarded as committing fraud in prescribing to patients that are leaving the UK.
