The Guy’s and St Thomas’s POPS team offer a fellowship, here the discussion covers both that and the wider issue of getting students and younger practitioners into this growing area of health care. How do we get undergraduates to learn the skills which simple demographics show are going to become more and more crucial as the trend towards a longer life span continues in the Western world?

Monty Mythen and Desiree Chappell continue their conversation with Dr Jugdeep Dhesi, Clinical Lead, POPS and Consultant Geriatrician, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust.
