Falls prevention

If you have a fall, or start to feel unsteady, you should discuss this with your GP, even if you have not suffered any injury as a result and feel fine otherwise. Your GP may want to check your medication or commission tests to see if there is any medical reason to explain it. With your permission, your GP can also refer you to the local falls prevention service for a falls risk assessment. This could include checking your eyesight, investigating any continence problems, checking your home for potential hazards and/or attending an exercise class to improve your strength and balance. 

The health promotion section of our website has a more in-depth section on falls prevention.
