Abstract

Falls are the second leading cause of death from accidents worldwide and adults aged over 65 years suffer the greatest number of fatal falls. Between April 2013 and March 2016, there were 63,398 ambulance call outs and 17,182 emergency hospital admissions for falls in Lancashire. This TIIG Lancashire report presents data and analyses relating to ambulance call outs and emergency hospital admissions for falls using North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) and Hospital Episodes Statistics (HES) data. Trends are presented in terms of demographics, call out locations and patient geography. Comparisons are also drawn between NWAS and HES data, particularly in terms of age standardised rates per 1,000 population for given geographical areas.
