Dated: 31-Jul-14

As part of the commitment to more personalised care for more patients with long term conditions, NHS Employers and GPC have agreed that all patients aged 75 and over will have a named accountable GP.

We will be required to ensure there is a named, accountable GP assigned to each patient within the cohort (patients aged 75 and over).

The named accountable GP will take lead responsibility for ensuring that all appropriate services required under the contract are delivered to each of their patients aged 75 and over, where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP) they will:

  • work with relevant associated health and social care professionals to deliver a multi-disciplinary care package that meets the needs of the patient
  • ensure that the physical and psychological needs of the patient are recognised and responded to by the relevant clinician in the practice
  • ensure the patient aged 75 years and over has access to a health check
