Medicine for older people

From 20 July, there has been a change in the way that medical cover is provided for patients admitted to medicine for older people.

The allocation of patients to this area is now determined by the location of the referring GP. A locality team will be responsible for patients throughout admission to hospital and subsequent admissions to medicine for older people.

Primary care management of older people will not change.
