National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) Annual Report 2017
Published: 14 Sep 2017
The National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) is a clinically led, web-based audit of hip fracture care that grew out of collaboration between the British Orthopaedic Association and the British Geriatrics Society and is now managed by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP).
The first NHFD record was entered in 2007, and on its tenth anniversary year (2017) the database now has half a million records. This represents a significant milestone for the data collectors who make the audit possible and it was celebrated in London at the regional meeting and tenth-anniversary meeting which brought past and present contributors together to hear about the NHFD’s achievements and activities.
