This project provides a unique data set on the pathway of frail older people through secondary care, from assessment in A&E, assessment units, inpatient wards and supported discharge. The project gives insight into why this cohort of patients appear to be more prone to delayed transfers of care.

The BGS Autumn Meeting will cover the latest in evidence and best practice in the health and care of older people.
