The Falls and Fractures Alliance: Reducing Falls and injuries in the over 65"s

Raymond JankowskiRaymond Jankowski

Raymond opened his presentation by saying that older people are huge assets when volunteering as this saves the NHS 50 billion on over 65 year olds.

Raymond said that he has been in public sector for over 25 years and the ration of beds to 999 calls is the biggest he has seen.

Falls occur more with people with dementia and that physical activity is a key factor in preventing falls.

Data is vital and needs to be used despite using protocols etc.

Raymond believes that we need to promote physical activity in people over 40 is essential to help with falls later in life.

Raymond set up the "triple fff" programme and works with Sir Muir Gray and his team and the aim is to provide a programme and a system for everyone to follow and support good practice! To support good practice in developing local fragility and falls prevention services.

The launch of the programme is on 4th December.

Raymond concluded by saying that we need to share what everyone is doing across the county to help everyone’s practice.
