Publication of GP Contract document for the provision of GP care for Under 6’s
Under the new arrangements, children under 6 will be eligible for GP care free at the point of service. They will also benefit from age-based preventive checks focused on health and wellbeing, identifying obesity and other problems early, and the prevention of disease. These assessments will be carried out once when a child is aged 2 and again at age 5, in accordance with an agreed protocol. The contract will include an agreed cycle of care for children diagnosed with asthma, under which GPs will carry out an annual review of each child where the doctor has diagnosed asthma.
