This submission reflects Independent Age’s interest in ensuring a health and care system that works to protect the dignity and independence of older people in this country. Polling conducted in 2014 revealed that the provision of healthcare and the NHS was the biggest issue of concern for those aged 65 and over.

The Independent Age encourage the Committee to hear evidence from a wide range of voices within social care and to keep the sustainability of both health and social care at the heart of its deliberations.
