Better care for older people

To improve care for older people, the North West London health and care partnership is working together on these priorities:

  • Getting the whole health and care system working together for older people
  • Home from hospital          
  • Last phase of life
  • Commissioning high-quality and effective care for older people

Key facts

  • By 2032, there will be a 40 per cent increase in people aged 65 and over
  • the NHS spends three times more on caring for a 75 year-old than a thirty year old, and this increases to five times more for over 80s
