“What can I do to stay safe?”
This is the question we asked everyone to think about during Falls Awareness Week 2019.
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. We are already looking forward to the 2020 edition.
Thank you for all your amazing work to make the first Falls Awareness Week from the London Falls Prevention Network such a success!
Lots of your great local campaign activity has been captured in the pictures below.

Hear, hear! .... Thank you to everyone across the UK for an overwhelming response to what, initially, was only going to be a pilot for half a dozen trusts!!! ... I guess we had better start planning for next year then?!?
