In a nutshell: 176 hospitals admitted 70,000 patients with hip fracture last year. Ensuring safe, effective and equitable care for this large and often vulnerable group of patients remains a major public health issue. Overall one year mortality after hip fracture is high at around 30%. Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust aimed to transform key stages of the patient pathway, establishing a multidisciplinary audit framework with 12 standards. Results included a 44% reduction in 30 day mortality Trust-wide.
