Driving and the elderly

Are your GPs concerned about patients who may not be fit to drive or perhaps nopt sure where help can be sought from?

As a GP I am frequently asked about the elderly and their fitness to drive.  This comes from other familly members or from friends and neighbours. I am able to advise on, medical matters but not always about driving. This information might be helpful to promote to your elderly patients.
 
Following the great success of last years awareness week, Hampshire Police have booked another week between Monday 28th September and Saturday 3rd October to help promote and raise awareness of the Older Drivers Forum and how it can help and support Older Motorists to carry on driving safely for longer.

They will be visiting 6 different venues across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight with their  partners where they will  give advice not only to older drivers but also to Family and Friends and other interested parties. It is free to attend, no appointment required and people can just pop in anytime between 9.30am and 3pm.
 
Attached are two posters about the event in portrait and landscape versions. 
 
You can find out more about the forum by visiting the  web site at http://olderdriversforum.com/
