GMD or Global Medical Dossier
Your GP is responsible for keeping and co-ordinating your GMD, your Global Medical Dossier containing your medical records. The quality of healthcare is improved if all your medical records are kept by a single GP practice.
Your GP is in the best position to organise a “custom” referral and this global medical dossier optimises communication between the specialist, your GP and other healthcare providers.
If you are aged 75 or over or if you have a chronic illness (your medical insurance will use statutory criteria to determine this), you will also enjoy a 30% discount on the non-refundable expenses of a normal house call.
