Abstract

Frailty has become synonymous with vulnerability and is a state caused by many factors, including disability, recurrent infection and multiple co-morbidities. The Gwent frailty service recognises the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to care, including timely recognition of frailty in patients and referral to the most appropriate services to optimise management and treatment.
