  • Providing counselling and support to elderly patients and their families regarding medical decisions and end-of-life care.
  • Conducting ward rounds and outpatient clinics to assess and manage geriatric patients in both hospital and community settings.
  • Participating in educational activities, including teaching, and mentoring medical students and junior doctors.
  • Adhering to NHS protocols, guidelines, and ethical standards in all aspects of patient care.
