If you are concerned about falling please talk to your GP or health care professional in the first instance. After checking your general health you may benefit from further support from the community health teams to maximise your independence and wellbeing. This may include visiting you at home to go through a more in-depth assessment with you and/or ensuring you receive physiotherapy to help improve your balance.
Three specialist Falls Prevention Leads are based at St. Mary’s Hospital and are also available for advice. They can be contacted on: (01983) 822099 ext 5353.
