"Fall prevention and Intensive Home Support"

About: King's Mill Hospital / Accident and emergency Newark & Sherwood / Intermediate care and falls team Specialist services / Falls prevention service

(as the patient),

I had a fall recently, this resulted in a pelvic fracture I was admitted to Kingsmill Hospital and discharged five days later. The service I received both in A&E and on the ward was excellent.

 They tried to get me a bed in Mansfield Community Hospital but none were available so I happy to be discharged to the care of the Falls Team and the Intensive Home Support Team. They have been a god send and worked as a team to provide all the help and care I have needed. This has made my recovery and getting back on my feet much faster. Everyone involved was lovely and helped me get my confidence back. A big thank you to all concerned for the excellent care I have received
