CNWL Falls Service 

This service provides therapeutic assessment and rehabilitation to help reduce the risk of falls. Therapists visit patients at home and complete a falls assessment. The patient may receive therapy and/or equipment provision in their home, be referred to a medical clinic and/or be referred to an exercise group. The Staying Steady Exercise programme is for patients at risk of falling who are medically fit and able to participate in an hour long group.

Downloadable patient leaflets for the following can be found in the downloads section on the right:

  • Staying Steady: A Guide to Reduce Your Risk of Falling 
  • Fear of Falling: Understand It, Beat It

To make a referral to this service please complete the GP FRAT score tool, to establish if your patient is appropriate and email a completed referral form to CNWL Camden Central Access Team to camdenreferrals.cnwl@nhs.net
