AnnotationThis publications was the first prepared by the British Council for Ageing, which was formally constituted in 1975. Hugh W Mellor of the National Corporation for the Care of Old People (NCCOP) served on the Council and wrote the Introduction to the booklet. On the Council, the following bodies were also represented: British Society for Research in Ageing; British Society of Social and Behavioural Gerontology and the British Geriatrics Society. Each of these societies' representatives contributed to the booklet which calls for more funding to be spent on research that would benefit the quality of life for the ageing individual. In comparison to funding of clinical medicine in younger age groups, funding for the 'temporal changes of life' which lead to a decline in the capacity to adapt to the environment, lags far behind; and the Council argues that this needs to be addressed with some urgency.
