Department of Healthcare for Older People team

Our team

Working to achieve our vision, we have a multi-disciplinary team which includes doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers and pharmacists, amongst many others.

We have Older People’s Assessment and Liaison (OPAL) teams in all our emergency departments and acute medical units. The teams see older people as soon as they arrive and liaise closely with community services to enable a "home-first" approach.

To see a list of our Older People’s consultants, please use our consultant directories.
