UK improving health care system with One Fell Swoop

July 26th, 2017

Australian-based retirement living and aged care consultancy, One Fell Swoop (OFS), which provides the knowledge and capabilities to successfully develop, market, sell and manage seniors’ developments is spreading its wings internationally. In order to influence the UK government to actively support the development of retirement communities through practical policy solutions, ARCO patron Baroness Sally Greengross OBE, invited Dr. Andrew Fleming (OFS Ageing & Living Director) to attend a roundtable lunch at the House of Lords in July this year.

The roundtable was also attended by senior Cabinet Office staff, social policy, and industry representatives. It covered The Health and Care Impacts of Retirement Communities and How to Achieve a Sustainable Solution. The key benefits highlighted and areas discussed included:

  • Reduced government supported care needs
  • Reduced NHS cost
  • Efficient care delivery into retirement communities
  • Quality care for residents
  • Improved recruitment and retention of staff
  • Applying emerging technology for retirement communities
  • The benefits of assisted living in retirement communities
  • The value for an ageing society in retirement communities


Dr. Fleming said, “It’s validation that what we’re doing in Australia is right and that we’re leading the sector internationally; the solutions we’ve developed here can be implemented over there.”

Earlier that day, OFS hosted a UK retirement living seminar at Trowers & Hamlins, leading lawyers in the UK seniors sector,  attended by industry leaders. Dr Fleming detailed the experiences of managing dementia in retirement villages, as well as why, what and how to best deliver services and care. Currently, only 0.5% of elderly people in the UK live in retirement communities and there is an urgent need for more communities as the population ages. That’s a figure OFS is looking to grow through its recently established London office.
