There is a pressing need to develop systems to provide care closer to home for older people living with frailty, both to minimise unnecessary urgent care episodes and improve outcomes. Planning services across local systems to meet the needs of this group of vulnerable patients is key to providing better and more resilient NHS care.

NHS Elect is launching an exciting new programme on developing a whole system approach to the care of older people. This programme will help with the design and delivery of care pathways in response to the Ageing Well policy and aims to support teams to improve care and outcomes for older people.

Further information on the programme is available in the flyer here, or get in touch at frailty@nhselect.org.uk
