Fracture Liaison Service Database: commissioner's report 2019

This report provides CCGs with a summary of the audit’s national key findings, recommendations and results for fracture liaison services (FLSs) within their locality.

The report explains what an FLS is and how FLSs could help CCGs not only reduce the number and cost of unplanned admissions but also make a significant reduction in morbidity and mortality for older people. It finds that there are significantly fewer FLSs available for older people in some parts of England and Wales than others, with an estimated 54,000 preventable life-altering fractures occuring over the course of the next five years as a result.
