Osteoporosis Service

This is a service that focuses on people at risk of a fracture and other conditions caused by low bone density.  It aims to identify, treat and give advice to those with the condition to try and prevent fractures and poor health.

How to access the service

People that have experienced a low impact trauma  may be referred to this service to have their bone density checked.  If they have a bone density that indicates they have osteoporosis, they may be treated or given lifestyle and dietary advice by a team of specially trained nurses and doctors. 

GPs may also directly refer to this service.
