Falls Awareness and Prevention Week

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

The IOW NHS Trust Falls Prevention Team alongside other Island services will be visiting a number of venues from Monday 27th September to Friday 1st October.  If you, or a family member, are concerned about falling and would like to talk to a member of the team, this is a great opportunity to access information, advice and assistance.

Please be aware that we will be implementing appropriate measures to maintain the safety of visitors and staff including politely requesting that visitors wear a face mask whilst inside the venue (except where exempt).

All visitors will be required to book an appointment at a chosen venue in advance.  If you are struggling to leave the house, we will also be able to offer you a telephone appointment.  For further enquiries and to book an appointment (community venue and telephone), please contact the Falls Prevention Team on (01983) 822099 ext 5353.
