The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee has published a report into healthy ageing, following an in-depth inquiry.

Professor Lynne Cox submitted both written and oral evidence to the select committee over the course of the inquiry. The evidence of Professor Cox is cited multiple times in the final report.

“The Committee found that the Government needs to urgently address the key issues of reducing health inequalities, implementing health system reforms and promoting lifestyle changes.

“The Government must therefore act now to increase support for the exciting new scientific research that targets the underlying processes of ageing. Treatments are being developed that could improve health without the need to treat multiple separate illnesses. Furthermore, technologies can be better utilised to help people live independently for longer.”
