There is evidence to suggest that multidisciplinary interventions can have a positive impact on frailty (Cameron et al 2013) and exercise is an important component of frailty intervention (Theou et al 2011). This project looked at whether patients referred to day hospital (DH) were frail and if so, whether usual DH care including physiotherapy could achieve similar outcomes to those within the evidence base.
