Geriatric medicine

The department of elderly care medicine deals principally with the diagnosis and treatment of illness in older people. 

The department also specialises in acute elderly medicine, stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), ortho-geriatrics as well as having a falls service and intermediate care and rehabilitation. The goal of the elderly care services is to support patients to help them recover to an optimal level of health, with the view of discharging them to an independent life at home. Northwick Park Hospital is home to one of eight hyper acute stroke units (HASUs) in London and thus lends its expertise to the care of all patients.
