Falls Awareness in NE Surrey

june07 123The Falls Team based at St Peter’s Chertsey regularly do Falls Awareness sessions to groups in the community. They have a standard presentation with some great visual aids which help people understand what they can do to reduce their risk of falling and to hear what sorts of help the health service provides.

Before they went out to talk the A2 Housing Group’s social club in the afternoon (with cream tea!) Anne Ralphson, Falls Co-ordinator and Sister Fiona Bird gave me some time to talk about what they do.

Fiona explained the work of the team, again emphasising the importance of maintaining independence and the sensitivity needed in dealing with people in their own homes. She also explains the large box of Quality Street on her shelf…

Anne took some coaxing to appear on camera, but I managed to get her to talk a little about the benefits to patients and why she’s proud of the service.
