The British Geriatrics Society's vision is for a society where all older people receive high quality, patient-centred care when and where they need it.  

In its 70th anniversary year the BGS has seven calls for action. We call on the incoming Government to take action to ensure:

  1. Sufficient investment in the NHS and social care

  2. Full integration of services

  3. A lasting solution to the current crisis in social care

  4. Greater capacity in intermediate care

  5. Access to comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) and personalised care plans for all older people with frailty, dementia and complex and multiple long-term conditions

  6. All who care for older people have the right skills

  7. The commitment and expertise of the current workforce is better recognised
