Protecting Our Parents

Synopsis
Three part BBC series which takes an unflinching look at the increased demand on UK health services caused by an ageing population. With unprecedented access to the NHS and Social Services’ older adults care teams in Birmingham, PROTECTING OUR PARENTS follows medics and social workers as they attempt to meet the increasing demand on their services. Filmed over the course of a year against a backdrop of stretched budgets and damning reports, the series looks at cases from the perspective of the professionals, families and older adults themselves to explore one of the most important challenges facing our society: how should we care for our ageing population?

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
