Elderly Medicine

Contact number: Switchboard 01772 716565

Our Elderly Medicine Department specialises in care of elderly patients, with particular focus on falls prevention, osteoporosis, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, stroke medicine, frailty fractures (orthogeriatrics) and general rehabilitation.  We also look after patients with more complex conditions including multiple medical conditions, people who need multiple medicines (polypharmacy) and frail people.

The Proactive Elderly Care Team (PECT) screens patients for dementia and delirium and aims to give the best support and treatment to the frailest patients over the age of 75 years .

The department works closely with nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, discharge co-ordinators, and social and primary care service colleagues to ensure joined-up care is provided.
