South West London Collaborative Commissioning

What about older people?

Some frail elderly people need much more on-going support to keep them well, helping to prevent them falling and helping them recover more quickly when they have been unwell. Acute hospitals, GPs, social services and other parts of the NHS will work together to support the frail elderly, including those with dementia, in the community. We are exploring the idea of converting parts of our acute hospital sites to provide specialist support to older people
