Older people’s care improvement initiative (opcii)

The Dunhill Medical Trust’s research strategy focuses on the needs of older people in the UK and those with age-related diseases, or with disabilities, or requiring rehabilitation as a result of ageing. In 2013/14, the Trust launched a strategic programme aimed at improving health and social care for older people, following the findings of the 2013 Francis Report into the failings at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust.

The programme, which consists of a number of strands, will commit up to £3m to making a real difference to the lives of older people. Read the Guardian coverage on the launch of the call for Developing a Network of Care and take a look at the other projects we’ve launched.


What we do

Our focus for support is research into the mechanisms of ageing and innovation in the care of older people.
