About

Dr Alexander has been a Consultant for 18 years.  He works in Eastbourne and is helping the team develop services for frail, older people.  He previously ran Elderly Care Services in Brighton for 8 years.

His main interest is in Acute Elderly Care, trying to improve the efficiency in the way we manage older people in the acute setting. He has always been keen to intervene early, make a diagnosis and management plan so that older people do not have unnecessary long stays.

Dr Alexander was instrumental in improving Orthogeriatric services in Brighton, particularly for those patients with hip fractures. He has tried to do similar with those having elective and emergency operations under the General surgeons. More recently he set up a Community Geriatric service across the Havens.

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.  He is currently setting up a Urological liaison service in Eastbourne.
