General Medical Services contract requirement on routine frailty identification

NHS England has updated guidance for general practices to support implementation of the new frailty requirements in the 2017/18 GP contract.

It provides an explanation as to why routine frailty identification is included, what a general practice is required to do, with signposting to further support. In addition to this NHS England, supported by the British Medical Association (BMA) General Practice Committee and NHS Employers, have issued additional guidance to highlight the requirement to apply clinical judgement to confirm frailty in relation to the introduction of routine frailty identification in the new General Medical Services contract.
