For adults registered with a GP in the South Gloucestershire area who have been identified as being at an increased risk of falling or who have had unexplained falls or black-outs.
We aim to find out the reasons for your falls and balance problems, and also the cause of your black-outs. We will also work with you to find solutions to improve your independence and confidence. We provide advice and information to improve your safety and balance as well as assessing whether you are at risk of osteoporosis.
Clinics are held at Cossham Hospital and appointments take at least an hour.
As part of your treatment you may be offered a short exercise and balance course, which will be based at the clinic or at another location. These courses are run by our specialist physiotherapy team.
This service is available by referral through your GP or another health professional.
Do you know a member of staff within our Falls & Balance Service who has gone above and beyond your expectations and deserves to be recognised for delivering an exceptional service. Each month we choose an individual or team to be our Sirona ‘Star’.
