Hospitals are regarded as places you go to heal. But if you are older is this still the case? Find out what simple changes to healthcare could make all of our later lives better.

Chris is a Physiotherapist and feels that healthcare should be about empowerment and health promotion. He has a passion for our bodies’ ability to heal and protect itself when it’s provided with the correct conditions and he wants to promote this message widely. He has degrees in both Sport & Exercise Science and Physiotherapy and has a keen interest in fitness and well-being. He’s spent the last 8 years working within the NHS and has had articles printed in national magazines on the topic of healthcare. He believes health is an entitlement we should all enjoy but it is down to us to claim it.
