Recommendations
PCT to commission care pathways falls and osteoporosis for
patients with first fragility fracture
Acute trust review services for NOF patients
PCT to commission clinics to offer falls and osteoporosis
assessment indicated in first point
PCT to review exercise options locally
DOH to consider osteoporosis treatment in QOF
Primary and secondary care to share documents/data on
fragility fracture patients
Primary and secondary care to review information sharing and
governance/audit agreements relevant to above
National Hip Fracture
Database




A joint initiative between the British Orthopaedic
Association and British Geriatrics Society
Aims: to focus attention on hip fracture both locally
and nationally; benchmark its care across the
country; use continuous comparative data to create a
drive for sustained improvements in clinical standards
and cost effectiveness
Voluntary participation, SRFT taken part since
October 2007
Sections publishing best practice, BOA/BGS Blue
Book Version 2 and literature database for neck of

Demographics from first year data
Approximately third are 75-84 years and third 84-95
years, with 75% female
Discharge (including death), 73% less than 20 days
and 88% less than 30 days (c.f. national 74% and
87.5% respectively)
Facilities audit shows we have 50% national figure
for medical and specialist nurse provision for hip
fracture patient care.
Mortality 30 days 7.8% versus national 8.4% (ONS)

Participation in both projects valuable: change has
resulted
Measure the patient demographics, service provision
in existence and relate this to that which should be
provided
Both projects continue, with a further audit by RCP
this year and continuous participation in NHFD
Demonstrates Salford committed to working
collaboratively to measure and improve performance
in management of adults with fracture
