Elderly care

We offer an inpatient and outpatient service to elderly people with complex medical problems who require individualised treatment plans. Our staff have a special interest in osteoporosis, pagets disease and renal osteodystrophy.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis literally means ‘porous bones’ and is often referred to as the ‘fragile bone disease’. Osteoporosis is a disease of bone that leads to an increased risk of fracture. We run osteoporosis clinics for adults of all ages and deliver a range of investigations and treatments for people with osteoporosis and metabolic bone diesease.

We also run a fracture liaison service for inpatients on the orthopaedic ward and outpatients in the fracture clinic.
