Frailty Scoring

Patient Information:

Some of you may be aware patient records are now showing frailty scores.  The addition of the Electronic Frailty Index score is to help the practice identify individuals whom may benefit from further assessment. 

This is an administrative code added to the healthcare record based only on existing information contained in the record. It is not an indicator of a clinical diagnosis of frailty nor can be used as such. The use of the index score is part of improving quality of care to individuals with frailty across Lancashire and South Cumbria.
