Change that leads to better lives

Achieving Age Equality in Health and Social Care

No more excuses, say national social change agency.

The 'Access all Ages?' report by the Royal College of Surgeons on the challenges older people and their families face in accessing surgery on the grounds of age only serves to further highlight the inherent age discrimination that persists in the NHS. Given that older people are the its largest ‘user group’, it is hoped that this report will provide a wake-up call and encourage all public bodies to look at ways in which they can ensure that both treatment and support can be both accessed and shaped by the people that wish to participate in them. The report can be accessed from the Royal College of Surgeons' website or downloaded on the right.
