The Improving Quality of Life for People with Frailty event is one in a series of regional events supported by NHS England to bring local commissioners, clinicians, providers and others together to explore how we can improve care for older people living with frailty.
It has been organised by the Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network with Health Innovation Manchester and the Innovation Agency.
The objectives for the day are to:
- Identify the services available to support people who are defined as being frail
- Look at what improvements can be made within Frailty Programmes
- Promote existing best practice
- Explore how we can work together to improve care and services within the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) regions.
Speakers on the day include:
- Dr Dawn Moody from NHS England who will discuss the national perspective on Frailty
- Rachel Reid from NICE, who will be exploring how to improve care and support for people with frailty.
During the morning there will be a question and answer session and an opportunity to learn about existing local projects within the region. The afternoon will focus on table discussions within STP Groups with the aim of developing STP actions plans.

A wide variety of delegates will be attending the event from NHS commissioners and providers, Local Authorities including social care, GP practices and the Fire and Rescue Service.
