Other relevant information:
Falls services are provided by three locality based Community Health Teams (East, West & Central). Patients are triaged to be seen either at a 2 hour outpatients appointment at Falls Clinic (one hour with physio & one hour with a community geriatrician), followed by a home environment assessment, or to be seen in their own home by the multi-professional team (community geriatrician home visits also possible). Medical investigations and equipment provision are arranged. Strength and balance exercises can be one to one at home, or at a class.
