Falls Prevention Service

The main focus of the service is to raise the profile and to increase staff knowledge regarding falls prevention and the management of falls among our older population.

The Falls Screening service
This service offers falls screening with onward appropriate referrals, for patients over the age of 65 who have fallen and have been referred to by Northern Ireland Ambulance Service or the Trusts Emergency Departments / Minor Injury Unit.

The overall aim is to enable older people to continue to live healthy, safe lives with increased independence. To help achieve this we work in partnership with statutory, private and voluntary organisations.

Information on how to help prevent falls is available in The Ups and Downs of Falling leaflet, Stand up for your bones leaflet and the Falls Prevention Advice Poster.
