"A total of 47 per cent thought the NHS was ageist while 55 per cent said they were worried themselves about how the NHS would treat them in old age.
The survey, of 201 doctors who specialise in caring for older people and are members of the British Geriatrics Society (BGS), was carried out for the charity Help the Aged.
More than six in 10 (66 per cent) doctors agreed that, in their experience, older people were less likely to have their symptoms fully investigated.
Meanwhile, 72 per cent thought older people were less likely to be considered for, or referred for, essential treatments like neural surgery or chemotherapy.
More than three-quarters (77 per cent) were also in favour of laws preventing age discrimination in the NHS."
