Ageing Well: Reducing unwarranted variation in health outcomes

Monday, September 25, 2017 - 12:30
The Open University, CMR 15

Professor Martin Vernon, National Clinical Director for Older People and Person Centred Integrated Care, NHS England presents: ‘Ageing Well: Reducing unwarranted variation in health outcomes’ (open to all).

By 2025 it is estimated that the number of people aged 65 and over will increase by 20% to over 12 million. While we can expect the overall prevalence of disability in older people to remain constant at around 20%, the absolute numbers living with lost functional ability is expected to increase by a quarter to nearly 3 million people. There is emerging evidence of significant and sustained differences in the trajectories of frailty and wellbeing between the richest and poorest thirds of the population across cohorts as they age. Taking these various factors into account, this seminar will provide an overview of recent developments in NHS England’s approach to supporting the population to age well and provide opportunity to explore ways in which we can begin to reduce unwarranted variation in health and well-being in late life.
