“The NHS Long Term Plan, published in January 2019, notes that the NHS needs to help older people living with frailty stay healthy and independent for as long as possible. This guide from the BGS is an excellent and comprehensive resource addressing this need. It supports primary care work with older people, and their families, to help them stay well for longer.”
