Reducing system-wide pressures on the NHS from falls
In the UK, a third of people over 65 and half of people over 80 fall at least once a year. This means that every year in the UK, at least 5 million people will experience at least one fall.
Non-injury and minor-injury fallers often wait hours for help, resulting in ‘long lies’ and the associated serious complications, such that even if there was no initial injury from the fall, the long lie will cause harm.
Here at Felgains, we work with the NHS, ICSs, Ambulance Trusts, UCR and Falls Response teams across the country to help them to reduce ambulance callouts and hospital admissions from falls, improve the patient and staff experience, and reduce system cost and pressure.
