One of the most pressing challenges presenting itself to the NHS is that of an ageing population, who often have multiple co-morbidities and complex care needs. The population over 65 is due to be at least 700,000 by 2030.

This presents a challenge to health services with opportunity to address by innovation in service delivery and technology adoption, and for businesses, social enterprises and researchers who can help people to stay active and productive as they age.

This session will reflect on the need to reconsider attitudes to what it is to age, how we can do it better and the innovative thinking and solutions which can support the health and care system, and utilise resources through improved wellbeing and healthy life expectancy.
