Named accountable GP for all patients

Named accountable GP for all patients

All patients have a named GP who is responsible for their care in the practice.

Your named GP will take lead responsibility for the coordination of all services required. There is no need for you to see your named GP, you should continue to see the GP of your choice when attending surgery as you do at present.  Your named GP’s role in your care is purely to ensure that all your care needs are met.

We allocate all patients to a GP by the first letter of their surname

NHS Health Checks

What is an NHS Health Check?

Even though you might be feeling fine, Leeds is offering a free NHS Health Check which is for everyone between the ages of 40 and 74, who has not already been diagnosed with Cardiovascular Disease. You will be invited (once every five years) to have a check to assess your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes and will be given support and advice to help reduce or manage that risk.

Your NHS Health Check can help you to stay well and is free of charge.

What happens at the NHS Health Check

Your NHS Health Check will take less than half an hour and involves some simple questions about your lifestyle and family medical history and measurements will be taken such as age height, weight, blood pressure.  You will also have a blood test to measure your cholesterol level and your results will be given to you. If you're over 65, you will also be informed about the signs and symptoms of dementia.

After we receive your results you’ll be offered personalised advice and support to help stay healthy

As long as you don't have an existing vascular condition we will contact you when your NHS Health Check is due.

Health and Social Care Information Centre


Your Information

In order to support your treatment and care, we already share information about you and the care you receive, with your consent and in a secure system, with other healthcare staff (district nurses, physiotherapists, hospital consultants etc).


Why does the HSCIC need your information

To ensure the NHS is providing the best possible care for everyone a comparison of information from different services such as hospitals, community and GPs is also required.   Information may also be used by researchers to identify patterns of disease.  The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) is responsible for delivering this new information system which has been set up to analyse, link and monitor data to help plan for future services to effectively prevent, treat and manage existing illnesses within our population. 


What information does the HSCIC need?

Information such as your date of birth, NHS number, postcode, gender or any coded information will be used to link records.  (Coded information usually refers to clinical diagnoses, prescriptions, test results, vaccinations, measurements etc.)  They do NOT need your name or address.


The information obtained will only be used by researchers and those planning health services and is controlled by law and strict rules to protect your privacy.


What should you do next?

If you are happy for your information to be shared you do not need to do anything.


If you have concerns or require further information ask the receptionist for a leaflet or go to for frequently asked questions.


If you do not want to share your information ask the receptionist to make a note of this in your medical record.   This will prevent your confidential information being used other than where necessary by law e.g. if there is a public health emergency.


You can change your mind at any time just let the receptionist know
