The Derby City Falls Prevention Collaboration Space aims to provide an opportunity to highlight the work that is taking place across the City. The hope is to give people from a range of different areas (community, clinical, care settings) the opportunity to come together, share information and learn from each other.

Which will ultimately lead to greater collaboration and understanding of falls prevention in Derby City.

If you’re interested in joining the space, or finding out more information, please contact Alistair Bagnall Alistair Bagnall Alistair.Bagnall@derby.gov.uk
