Worked as part of Age UK Wakefield District team in leading on the Vanguard New Models of Care Wakefield – Frailty Theme, across sectors and disciplines.

Develoepd monthly meeting of over 20 organisations and now working with Elderly Care and Frailty Programme to developed a more focussed approach.
|What area/topic of health or social care are you involved in, currently working on or/and have a passion to improve?||
My total focus now is on Prevention – working with the decades 50’s, 60’s and 70’s – to encourage better levels of Self-Care and patient activation to reduce incidence of Frailty in later years of life. Planning a joint approach in next two months to maximise the ability of member organisations to reach their goals in a coordinated way, which makes sense, and is of interest, to the target populations.
