Falls and fractures in older people

Ageing increases your chance of having a fall. As you get older your bones may become more fragile and break easier if you have a fall.

There is a range of support available across Nottinghamshire to help you prevent falls and stay healthy.

If you have had a recent fall or are worried that you may fall, please contact your GP and read the advisory poster [PDF].
