Find out about preventing falls

This week is Falls Awareness Week and our older persons unit are holding an event on Thursday 20 June, 2-4pm in Central Hall at St Thomas’ Hospital to give advice on improving safety and ways to avoid falls.

Around 30% of over 65s and 50% of people over 80 will have a fall each year. Patients, relatives and visitors to our hospitals are invited to find out more and to meet our team of experts including nurses, therapists and pharmacists.
