Future Research Initiatives

We are currently investigating the possibility of gathering further information on hospital admissions and diagnoses. This research would allow us to research ways by which hospital admissions and their causes can be prevented in older people.

Linkage to detailed information on hospital diagnoses are also available which will help us to carry out in-depth research on heart trouble, dementia and related health conditions

These data information sources are currently available through NHS Digital, an organisation that oversees and manages these data. We will continue to keep you updated on the progress of the Study. None of this research would have been possible without your help. We are very grateful and hope that you will continue to take part.

The study is funded by the British Heart Foundation, with additional project support from the Medical Research Council,  National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), and Dunhill Medical Trust
