NE Frailty Summit GraphicOrganised by the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria and the Newcastle Gateshead CCG Care Home Vanguard, the North East Frailty Summit provided delegates with the opportunity to find out more about innovative new approaches to improving the health and care of frail older people.

Taking place on the 5th December 2016 at the Newcastle Gateshead Hilton, the event attracted over 300 professionals with an interest in the health, wellbeing and care of frail older people including health and social care practitioners, commissioner and provider organisations, older people and their carers, voluntary organisations, universities, and industry.

You can see all the event updates over on Twitter by following #FrailtySummit16.
