The NHS Long Term plan identifies frailty as a priority stating that a milestone for urgent and emergency care is to “Provide an acute frailty service for at least 70 hours a week. They will work towards achieving clinical frailty assessment within 30 minutes of arrival”. This conference focuses on the important issue of transforming acute care for people with frailty: improving the quality of care for people with frailty and supporting them to stay out of hospital during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. Redesign of acute frailty services is crucial to meeting increasing demand and improving the quality of life for older people.
