Provide funding for universal access to Fracture Liaison Services (FLS)

Petition Details

The Government should commit to equitable access to FLS for all. The APPG on Osteoporosis and Bone Health’s recent report highlights the scale of under-diagnosis, under-treatment and missed opportunities in the NHS and provides a blueprint for change, which the Government should implement.

Additional Information

FLS is the world-standard for secondary fracture prevention, yet access is a postcode lottery, causing entrenched health inequalities. People who live on the wrong side of a catchment line are being left to suffer life-changing spinal and hip fractures. Government can transform the picture through a clear strategic direction from the top, backed with modest funding and sensible incentives. We’re calling on the Government to provide funding which will ensure that FLS is a universal NHS service.
