Care for hip fracture
Hip fracture is one of the most common and serious health problems affecting older people, and leads to more than 50,000 hospital admissions a year in England. Providing good-quality care for hip fractures will become increasingly important due to an ageing population and the corresponding rise in hip fracture incidence.
