Last chance - Book now for MICRA’s annual public lecture

Wednesday 11 May 2016 at 6.30pm

Professor David Oliver, President of the British Geriatrics Society will deliver this year’s public lecture, “Ageing and frailty: Game changers for our health and care services”.

Older people and their carers often use multiple services and see numerous professionals, risking disjointed care. Our training, values and systems haven't fully caught up with the changing nature of modern health and care systems and we need a sea change in our approach to ageing and health.
