Seeking Quality of Care For patients the experience of healthcare often matters as much as the outcome so we must keep listening to their views and take their opinions seriously.

Tribute to Peter Crome Peter has been an excellent president. He has worked diligently to heighten awareness of the BGS and to forge links with charities, Royal Colleges, basic scientists and social gerontologists as well as overseas geriatric societies. He has taken great delight in bestowing medals and awards on those who have done much to improve elderly care. He told me that being president was like being Santa Claus - it has been an enormous pleasure for Peter to acknowledge the major contributions made by our members, some of whom have worked tirelessly for many years without necessarily receiving praise for a good job well done. Peter has represented the BGS at home and abroad. Under his tutelage, we have grown in number and stature. On behalf of all BGS members, I wish to thank him most sincerely.
