The Falls Assessment and Education Service aims to reduce the number of people falling or at risk of falling in Gloucestershire through effective falls prevention information, education, assessment and intervention.

We have clinical specialist physiotherapists, each based in a different locality across the county. The physiotherapists provide specialist falls assessment with a focus on mobility, physical activity, balance and strength. This may be an outpatient appointment or may take place in the place of residence.

Advice and information will be given to reduce the risk factors with onward referral and signposting as necessary.
