North East Frailty Summit – Making Care Even Better

Written by Dan Cowie on 9th December 2016

We know that older people living with frailty can have the most complex of needs that can be hugely challenging to address.

The North East Frailty Summit has been a great day  – it was an absolute pleasure to be around people who are so knowledgeable and passionate about improving care for older people, and it has also been a great opportunity to get ideas for making care even better in the future.

As a doctor, I’ve always thought that working with older people can be extremely rewarding and today I have been able to not only listen to great speakers but also network closely with my peers in health and social care, many of whom I’ve admired for years.

I know for sure there are some things I’m going to be doing differently straightaway and I feel so privileged to have been able to work alongside the Academic Health Science Network in pulling together this event.

I’ve had a great day.
