Abstract

The booklet explains what good NHS care should look like for someone who has suffered a broken ‘fragility fracture’, including care from a Fracture Liaison Service (FLS). The guide also includes: 

  • advice on what assessments and treatments to expect 
  • a ‘bone health record’, so that patients can look at their care and compare to what should happen
  • a list of questions for patients to ask their doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional after breaking a bone
  • advice on what the patient can do to help themselves
