Example

Age can play a part when professionals make decisions about the care and treatment that 
patients receive and in some cases this will be wholly appropriate. What is not acceptable 
practice, and could also be viewed as unlawful by the Courts, is where a professional acts or 
makes a decision based on a stereotypical view of age and how that individual lives their life. 
Age must not be used as a proxy for the proper assessment of individual need. (Implementing a ban on age  discrimination in the NHS – making effective, appropriate  decisions 2012)
