Named GP for patients aged 75 and over
From April 2014, all patients aged 75 and over will have a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our Practice provides to them.
What does this mean for our patients aged 75 and over?
Over the next 2 weeks all patients aged 75 and over will receive a letter from the Practice with details of their named GP.
No action on behalf of the patient needs to be taken and patients can, if they wish, see another GP of their choice.
The named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our Practice provides.
They will also work with other relevant health and care professionals, who are involved in the patients care, to ensure that the care package (if required) meets individual patients needs.
