Jeremy Hunt: Named GPs for elderly 'first step'

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has told the BBC that giving 10,000 frail patients a named GP to co-ordinate their care will help ensure that they get "better, tailored personalised care".

Mr Hunt said: "Really what I want is for this to be a much bigger change so that everyone feels when they contact their GP they're talking to someone who knows about them and their family."
