Falls Therapy Service

This part of the website is being designed specifically for GPs, Clinical Commissioning groups, care homes and other care professionals who need the service referral information or access to Trust policies and care leaflets.

How does a GP refer in to this service?

All referrals should be directed via RAS or direct to the Service.

Types of patients regularly seen

Adults living in Shropshire communities, registered with a Shropshire GP, identified as having fallen, or at risk or fearful of falling.

This is generally for over 65s, but younger adults identified at risk will be considered according to their individual needs, as per NICE guidelines.

All referrals should be directed to RAS or shropcom.fallstherapy@nhs.net

Patients not seen by this service

The service does not see the following patients:

  • We are not an acute service.
  • We do not offer assessment or interventions to residents of care homes - please contact community physiotherapy services.
  • Patients residing in Shropshire but registered with a GP in Wales

Community Trust staff in Telford and Wrekin screen/ assess patients who are registered with Telford and Wrekin GPs in their own home, however, the Paul Brown Day Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford is commissioned to deliver falls exercise programmes for Telford and Wrekin patients.
