Reports, Patient Focused Reports | Published: 11 Nov 2020

This short report is designed to summarise information about falls and fragility fracture care in different parts of Wales, and to help people to understand what these audit of the Fall and Fragility Fracture Audit Programme (FFFAP) can tell them about the quality and organisation of care. FFFAP is a national clinical audit run by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) designed to audit and improve the care that patients with fragility fractures and inpatient falls receive in hospital.

FFFAP is composed of three national clinical audits:

  • the National Audit of Inpatient Falls (NAIF)
  • the National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD)
  • and the Fracture Liaison Service Database (FLS-DB).

These audits provide a quality improvement platform for local Health Boards in Wales – aiming to help local clinical teams and health service managers understand why people fall in hospital, the care that should be provided for fragility fractures, and what can and should be done to prevent future fractures.
