The British Geriatrics Society (BGS) has launched the first of a two-part guidance on the recognition and management of older patients with frailty in community and outpatient settings. Called Fit for Frailty, it has been produced in association with the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and Age UK.

It aims to be an invaluable tool for social workers, ambulance crews, carers, GPs, nurses and others working with older people in the community. The guidance aims to help them recognise the condition of frailty and to increase understanding of the strategies available for managing it.
