Event description

Description

Lancaster University Public Lectures Logo

Government predictions suggest that the number of people aged over 75 will rise 35% by 2025. Many people will remain healthy and independent as they get older but an increased number will need additional support at a time when the country as a whole is struggling to cater for the existing needs of the UK population. Funding, resources and ways of working have become important political, social and health challenges.

A keynote talk from Professor David Croisdale-Appleby OBE will set the scene before a panel discussion asks the question: what will public and professional health and social care look like less than 10 years from now and what new solutions are required?
