This conference focuses on the important issue of transforming acute care for people with frailty: improving the quality of care for people with frailty and supporting them to stay out of hospital during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. Redesign of acute frailty services is crucial to meeting increasing demand and improving the quality of life for older people.

“Too many older people with frailty suffer needless harms as a result of unplanned hospitalisation, long waits in A&E, long stays, and poor co-ordination of care. Many are approaching the end of life, when their needs and wishes should be understood and respected, something which has come into sharp focus during the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Dr Adrian Hopper, GIRFT Clinical Lead for Geriatric Medicine, September 2021

“Within hospitals there is much we can do to improve quality and safety of care for older people living with frailty”
