Falls advice

A FREE seminar is being held in Alnwick next week to provide simple and effective ways the elderly and disabled can reduce falling and injuring themselves.

Dr Andrew Richardson who specialises in falls prevention and treatment at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust will run the session, which will be aimed at carers and anyone at risk of falling. He will provide advice on how to avoid falls and how the Trust treats someone who is admitted to hospital following a fall.

The event will take place on Tuesday between 2pm and 3.30pm at St James Community Centre, Pottergate.

Contact the Trust’s Foundation Membership team on 0191 203 1296 to book a place on the seminar. Places are limited.
