Each year we respond to thousands of calls related to falls. While many of these are simply one off accidents, there are lots of people out there who are more vulnerable and susceptible to falling. This could result in life changing consequences which is why it’s really important that we do all we can to help reduce the risk of further falls.
Across the region there is a considerable number of schemes that our clinicians can refer patients to who have fallen, providing they have given consent, that aim to help patients who are at risk of falls. All of our frontline staff are educated in the importance of this long term to maintain their patients’ health and wellbeing.
