Abstract

This article describes the test of a method for consulting frail older people about the quality of Social Services and their unmet needs. The method, home interviews by senior Social Services managers, was prompted by advice from older Social Services clients about how best to obtain their views. Results from the interview programme are presented, together with benefits arising specifically from using managers as interviewers and comments on future application of this approach.
