Professor Adam Gordon

President Elect

Adam Gordon is Professor of the Care of Older People at the University of Nottingham and a Consultant Geriatrician at the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton. He will succeed Dr Jennifer Burns as President of the BGS in November 2022.

Adam's research interests are predominantly in how healthcare is delivered in care homes. He led the authorship of the BGS guidance on managing COVID-19 in care homes and more recently helped collate the Ambitions for Change document that set’s out the Society’s vision for healthcare in care homes in the future. He has also done work around peri-operative geriatrics and has recently begun to work in the field of sarcopenia as part of the Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research at the University of Nottingham. He maintains an active educational portfolio and played a key role in developing the UK and European recommended undergraduate curricula in geriatric medicine. He is a firm believer in bringing more clinicians into research and in ensuring that healthcare professionals and patients understand the impact of research in the real world.
