Published: 13 Dec 2019
Since 2007, the National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) has been measuring the quality of care for hip fracture patients, as well as functioning as a clinical governance and quality improvement platform. This report describes the data from all 175 trauma unites of the care provided to 66,313 people who presented with hip fracture in 2018, representing over 95% of patients in the UK.
This report examines the quality of patient care using six key performance indicators along with analysis on using the NHFD to support quality improvement, understanding variation in performance and statistics on mortality and secondary prevention.
