Osteoporosis service

Our aims are to contribute to the clinical care and management of patients with Osteoporosis and fragility fractures, focussing on prevention, education and information giving for patients, their carers and relatives.

Working closely with the Trust's falls team, we are now able to liaise closely with our fracture clinic,  Accident and Emergency Department, and Clinical Assessment Unit to assess patients who may be at risk of falls and fragility fractures, and refer to specialist services for investigation and treatment if necessary.

We continue to collect and keep data on Fractured Neck Femur patients for the local and National data bases and Best Practice Tarriffs, as well as promoting adherence to the quality care of these patients via the Multi disciplinary pathways.
