The Framework reflects the culmination of an intense period of research, stakeholder engagement and expert views on HA service needs of elderly patients. It places emphasis on improving the provision of integrated care to targeted elderly patients through multi-disciplinary approaches, enhanced patient/carer empowerment and strengthened collaboration with partner organisations. My gratitude goes to the wide range of staff and stakeholders who have contributed to its development. The Strategic Service Framework for Elderly Patients will support clinicians and executives in aligning programme development in the service planning process of HA, contributing to our vision for HA elderly services of enhancing the well-being of elderly patients, and will contribute to healthy ageing by raising the standards and quality of healthcare wherever care is given.
