Commissioning Guidance on Care for Frail Older People (NHS England)

NHS England has released practical guidance on the implementation of a care pathway for frail older people. This document summarises evidence on the effects of an integrated pathway of care. It also offers suggestions about using commissioning levers and incentives across providers when commissioning such pathways.

“If frail older people are supported in living independently and understanding their long-term conditions, and educated to manage them effectively, they are less likely to reach crisis, require urgent care support and experience harm.”
