Profile

Dr Alexander has been a Consultant for 10 years and has run the Elderly Care Service in Brighton for 6 years. HIs main interest is in Acute Elderly Care, trying to improve the efficiency in the way we deal with older people in the hospital. He has always been keen to intervene early, make a diagnosis and a management plan so that older people do not have an unnecessary long stay.

Dr Alexander has been instrumental in improving Orthogeriatric services in Brighton, particularly for those patients with hip fractures. He has tried to do similar with those having elective operations under both the Orthopaedic and General surgeons.

He is interested in frailty and the oldest old. He has an excellent knowledge of Pharmacology in the elderly, as this is often the cause of problems in this group of patients.
