Bone Health & Fracture Liaison Community Service

Enfield

The Enfield Bone Health and Fracture Liaison Service works together with GPs and other community-based organisations to identify and provide skilled assessment of elderly people who have fallen or fractured a bone.

The service will signpost and refer on to other organisations (e.g. physiotherapy for balance and strengthening exercises), or the team may refer for a DEXA scan to measure bone mineral density. The service also offers adherence and compliance checks with bisphosphonate therapy if prescribed.

Falling is not an inevitable result of ageing, but the risk of falling increases as people get older. Not all falls will result in serious injury, but a fall can result in a broken bone which may be difficult to recover from.
