Over 75s GP

Are you age 75 or over?

We are required to ensure that there is a named, accountable GP assigned to each patient aged 75 and over. This will be the GP that you have been registered under (not necessarily the GP you usually see).

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

This does not prevent you from seeing any clinician in the practice as you currently do.

Have you had your health check?

Arrange an appointment with our Health Care Assistant (HCA). It will take about 30 minutes and will cover general lifestyle and health.
