Letter: Care in crisis

Sir: If there has been a survey into the extent of age discrimination in the NHS (letter, 21 April), perhaps there should also be a survey into what old people expect. As a 75-year-old, I expect priority to be given to those younger than myself. I hope that those with their lives ahead of them and those with parental and occupational responsibilities will always have their needs preferred.
