The Healthcare Commission is currently looking at progress in implementing the national service framework (NSF) for older people. There will be a particular focus on mental health services for older people. The Healthcare Commission's report will be published later in the year.

The Department's national clinical directors for older people's services and mental health services, Professor Louis Appleby and Professor Ian Philp, will shortly be launching a vision for the future of older people's mental health services, outlining the key components of a model service and building on the service developments the NSF for older people has initiated.
