Better care for older people

This is a new section of our website, dedicated to helping doctors challenge the stereotypes associated with older people, and tackle the most common concerns older people have about their care.

We’ve pulled together online resources in the form of new and existing tools, good practice and guidance, both from us and from trusted partner organisations.

These resources are organised by themes that we’ve been told are important to older people and their doctors. To keep this content current and relevant, and to respond to any new issues that arise, we’ll be continually updating and reviewing these pages, with regular e-updates about these, to doctors and other subscribers.
