Doctor in the House: Life Expectancy vs Age - Which One Matters More?

Age is not just a number when it comes to health choices. Your age is one of the main factors that determines the types of health screenings that you need and when to go for them. But at a time when we’re living longer (but not necessarily healthier), should age still determine our health choices, or is it about life expectancy? Consultant urologist Dr George Lee is joined by consultant geriatrician Prof Dr Shahrul Bahyah Kamaruzzaman and consultant gynaecological oncologist Prof Dr Woo Yin Ling to discuss.
