- Understand how Brexit may affect the elderly and frail population

- The clinical implications of Brexit and the effect on the geriatric medicine services

- To have a better understanding of the key clinical areas such as the ageing heart, ageing brain and frailty which will affect the key services post Brexit

-To learn about the overlap between balance problems and syncope which is very common in the elderly

- Pathophysiology of common elderly conditions which are less well understood such as syncope and the frailty syndrome
