Consensus Statement on Healthy Ageing (PHE / CfAB)

Summary

Public Health England and the Centre for Ageing Better have released a consensus statement, containing widely accepted proposals for making England the “best place in the world to grow old”. Five core principles are given, with the aim of inspiring action for improvement:

  1. Putting prevention first and ensuring timely access to services and support when needed.
  2. Removing barriers and creating more opportunities for older adults to contribute to society.
  3. Ensuring good homes and communities.
  4. Narrowing inequalities.
  5. Challenging ageist and negative language, culture and practices.

“Signatories span the areas of health, employment, housing and communities, and are from academia, local government, the NHS, and the public and voluntary sectors.”.
