Frail & Elderly

The CCG frailty team is continuing its work to integrate services across the borough for all frail and elderly people.

  • Add patients at high risk of unplanned admission to the practice frailty register and refer to the Complex Care Nurse to help manage the patient.
  • The Neighbourhood MDTs have now started (see below and see Downloads for the list of practices and timetable). GPs and Practice Nurses are encouraged to visit and discuss patients.
    • NW3 Neighbourhood – every 3rd Wed at Hampstead Group Practice
    • South & CHE(S) – every 3rd Wed at South Camden Centre for Health
    • NW5 Neighbourhood – every 4th Wed at Parliament Hill Surgery
    • CHE (W) – every 4th Wed at West Hampstead Medical Centre
  • All referrals to the MDT should be sent before 14:00 on the Tuesday before the meeting each week to mdt.admin@nhs.net.
  • Care navigators are available in practices, supporting vulnerable older people to get the right care.
  • There are four education modules that can be completed – GP Education Frail & Elderly. Upon completion, a certificate will be issued.

For more information about prevention of falls, please refer to the Camden Integrated Network Checklist (see Downloads).
