Mass diagnosing frailty does not meet contract requirements, GPs warned


so how on earth are we meant to do it then? they want us to call in every old patient, including those we dont see often, run the eFI tool (which is validated, and good marker of what they are defining to be frailty), then have the chat? surely if the algorithm has taken into account the 30-odd factors it says it does, and we have a chat with the patient about falls and SCA inclusion, then thats that. When the spec first came out, no-one said we couldnt batch add, and in fact EMIS does it automatically. Im not gonna change it
