With over 300,000 fragility fractures in England and Wales every year detected in patients aged 50 years and over (NHFD, 2019), and an ever-increasing ageing demographic, secondary fracture prevention is more important than ever.

This annual report presents the results of analysis on secondary fracture prevention care received by patients 50 years and older in England and Wales between 1 January 2018 and 31 December 2018. It examines 11 key performance indicators deemed critical for a fracture liaison service to be effective and necessary for service improvement. The report found continued variation in each KPI, particularly for identification and monitoring.
