Falls Awareness Week

“What can I do to stay safe?”

falls prevention hospitals

This is the question we are asking everyone to think about this Falls Awareness Week.

It is the obvious question to ask, especially when you consider studies have shown that falls injuries can be reduced by up to 60% by educating patients and their carers about falls prevention.1

It has been amazing to see how many people have signed up to, not just from the London Falls Prevention Network but nationally, so we are really looking forward to promoting all your great initiatives during Falls Awareness Week.
