Avoidance Admission/Designated GP

The NHS has introduced a new service for people who are over 75 and more at risk of an unplanned hospital admission in an emergency situation and who would be likely to benefit from more tailored, active support from their GP surgery. As a member of this programme, you will have an allocated GP and they will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery will provide you. We will also make sure that you have a named care co-ordinator, who may be your named GP or another health professional involved in your care and is likely to be the person you see the most. Your named care coordinator will be responsible for sharing information with you, and – if you are happy for us to do so – with other health professionals involved in your care. Information would only be shared with other care organisations (e.g. hospitals, emergency services and if you have one, your social care team) to help coordinate your care.

These new arrangements do not prevent you making an appointment or seeing any doctor, of your choosing within the surgery, as you would normally do.

Sections are alphabetical by surname :-

  • Dr Suren Sivakumar P – Z
