Perioperative Care of People Living with Frailty

The Centre for Perioperative Care, working in collaboration with the British Geriatrics Society, has now published guidance for the care of people living with frailty undergoing elective and emergency surgery that encompasses the whole perioperative pathway

The Centre for Perioperative Care brings together healthcare workers, patients and many others who want to work collaboratively to develop and promote the best possible care for patients who need surgery. As a team we have the chance to make permanent and positive changes to the health of patients and populations both now and for the future.
