“What’s Right and Wrong in Health and Social Care for the Elderly?”

The House of Lords Select Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change will tomorrow ( Tues 6th Nov ) take evidence from experts, doctors and the care regulator on the current state of health and social care for older people. The Committee will look at whether changes are needed to meet increasing demand from an ageing population, given current pressures on public spending.

The evidence session will start at 9:45am on Tuesday 6 November in Committee Room 2 of the House of Lords.
