This report represents a summary of the comments received around falls prevention.
A number of people who had experienced a fall shared their experiences with HWD. Therefore, between September 2019 and January 2020 HWD undertook a number of engagements within Strictly No Falling (SNF) classes across Derbyshire to explore two themes:
1. People are not being provided with fall prevention information when attending their GP or hospital following a fall
2. People are not being referred to SNF classes.We spoke to a total of 154 people, within Derbyshire, who had experienced a fall.
