David Oliver: Pet hate—privatisation by stealth

David Oliver is a geriatrician and former national clinical director for older people, who has little truck with the idea that most admissions of elderly people are preventable. It is “absolute La La Land to think we’re going to be in a position any time soon when older people don’t still keep piling through the doors of general hospitals,” he asserted in 2013, arguing that the challenge was to improve hospital care, not pretend that it can be avoided. He is president of the British Geriatrics Society, senior visiting fellow at the King’s Fund, and visiting professor at City University London.
