The Clinical Effectiveness and Evaluation unit (CEEu) of the Royal College of Physicians was commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership to perform a National Falls and Bone Health in Older People three year programme of work. This is a Department of Health, England-led initiative and therefore Scotland will not be involved in this work.

In Scotland, as part of the implementation of the Rehabilitation Framework, we are developing a National Falls Programme with the aim of significant service re-design to improve the delivery of falls services.
