Over 175 people over the age of 65 in Bedford Borough will fall and fracture their hip in 2022.

40% of the hip patients will not return to their place of residence after hospitalisation.

20% of such patients will die within a month.

25% will die within a year of their fracture.

It is a life changing experience.

Prevention of Falls and fractures is a serious matter.
