What is the Ageing Well strategy aim?

The aim is to enhance the health, wellbeing and quality of life of people growing older in Tower Hamlets – ensuring that Tower Hamlets is a borough where growing older is about retaining your independence and dignity with the assistance of family, friends and the community where necessary but knowing that the right care and support is there if that independence becomes
significantly reduced or your changing circumstances mean increased isolation and loneliness.

As a result of OPRG Members involvement with the Dignity Code Barts Health intend to use the code throughout the whole trust (including at Whipps Cross Hospital, Newham Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital as well as The Royal London and Mile End Hospitals).

This would mean that members of the OPRG could be involved with Barts Trust at meetings and training in the future.
