Frailty and care of older people remain a key challenge across the NHS especially with rapidly changing demographics and patterns of illness. There is recognition that many parts the health and care system fail to sufficiently improve the quality of life of older people and there are unacceptable variations in health inequalities. Much more needs to be done to delay the onset of frailty and slow down its progression. Care of older people can be streamlined to make it more collaborative, integrated and patient-centered. It is hoped that such an approach will benefit the population; and improve the efficiencies and outcomes within the NHS. The newer developments in treatments, service reconfigurations and technology should enable
such a strategic change
