The NHS Confederation has published 'Falls prevention: new approaches to integrated falls prevention services'. This Briefing shares the learning and recommendations from a workshop for members held by the NHS Confederation and the Ambulance Service Network on falls prevention strategies for the older population. It is intended to help the NHS and local government think about new approaches to the commissioning and provision of comprehensive, integrated falls prevention services. It shows that a focus on prevention and early intervention through joint working has benefits for the whole health and social care system, and that not taking action may soon become unaffordable.
