The Frailty Unit is part of the service offered by the Proactive care for Older People undergoing Surgery (POPS) team at Guy’s and St Thomas’s Hospital. Could something like this work outside of the context of the UK’s National Health Service?

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.
