Abstract

[Trust is loaded with a range of problems for governments with older people with the issues uncovered in this book. For example, health legislation has in the past decade received scantily uncritical policy acclaim. Integrating health and social care policy based on the triumvirate of “autonomy,” “empowerment,” and “choice” was endorsed by many commentators as the political and philosophical panacea for alleviating the deep and destructive problems confronting the health system in the UK which impinges on life expectancy. However, this chapter shatters assumptions surrounding health policy. The broken relationship between professionals and older people has been placated on distrust. A close and cogent examination of the emergence of health policy in the UK raises serious questions about its main intentions. In other words, it is “expert” led with no understanding of diversity and experiences of service users’ health and illness that impinges on mortality.]
