  • Webinars: learn about national and local improvement work, ask questions and take part in discussions.
  • Frailty resources: view a range of tools, resources and case studies you can use to help improve outcomes for people living with frailty.
  • An MS Teams channel: communicate, share information and ideas with staff across Scotland who are interested in improving services for people with frailty.
