Welcome to the Winter 2021 edition of the Wessex AHSN Healthy Ageing Newsletter
2020 has bought us all challenges in different spheres of our lives, but reflecting on 2020 as a programme, I feel it has bought our wonderful network closer together, albeit remotely. Our networks, built on trust and reputation, have grown at pace, allowing the great frailty-related work that is being undertaken across Wessex to be showcased both at regional and national level. It has provided new opportunities and new ways of thinking, bringing together systems, academia, industry, the care home sector and voluntary sector to collaboratively work to improve services for individuals living with frailty – it has been inspiring!
As we head towards a period of uncertainty once more, we thank our partners for their continued support, their passion, their outstanding and exemplary work, with hopes that as we plan the programmes future projects, we will transform services and provision of care across Wessex – it will be great for us all to be part of that journey.
