A series of free, entertaining and educational talks for older people are being held in Hastings, St Leonard’s, Rother, and Bexhill in April and May.
The ‘Be your own doctor – avoiding frailty in older age’ events are presented by consultant geriatrician Dr. Elena Mucci. Dr Mucci’s talk is designed to help older people lead healthy, active and fulfilling lives, and to learn more about aging, health and self-care.
The events have been organised by local Patient Participation Group (PPG) volunteers with local sponsorship. PPGs are patient groups whose members work closely with their GP surgery, to share feedback and influence how local health services are delivered.
