Medicine for Older People

Our service supports older people in the area we serve. We help people who have multiple conditions, functional impairment, and complex care needs.

The MFOP team is based at both Peterborough City Hospital, Stamford and Rutland Hospital and Hinchingbrooke Hospital. It provides comprehensive medical care for older people. The staff within the specialty aim to promote a better level of health and well-being in old age.

The team aims to provide a patient-centred, compassionate and holistic approach in caring for their patients; adopting a multi-disciplinary approval to optimise treatment options and outcomes. We run clinics for falls, Parkinson’s disease, and general medical problems in older people.

Our Geriatricians provide patient care and treatment in out-patient departments, the Medical Assessment Unit, Short Stay Units and Wards; providing intermediate to long-term care coupled with rehabilitation services.
