What are the implications of demographic change for British Medicine?

The BMJ, in conjunction with the Debate of the Age, are holding this one-day conference to examine the possible effects of an ageing society on the practice of medicine, medical education and medicine's institutions.
With plenary sessions and a choice of six different workshops, this conference will be highly interactive and educational. Contributors include: Sir Donald Irvine, London; Professor Kay-Tee Khaw, Cambridge; Professor David Hall, Sheffield; and Professor Sir John Grimley Evans, Oxford. Topics to be considered include:

  • Ageism in the NHS

  • Innovative primary care for older people
  • Long term care
  • Planning ahead

I look forward to seeing you at what will prove to be a stimulating and productive day.
Yours faithfully
