    The number of over 60's admitted to Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments in the North as a result of slips, trips and falls has risen appreciably in 4 years, new data has revealed.

    And one of the areas that saw the biggest increases was west Lancashire, with Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust reporting that admissions have risen from 155 to 295, an increase of 90%.

    Manchester based Home Care provider Trustcare received data from 19 northern NHS Trusts following a freedom of information request, and found that the number of admissions in the North overall, as a result of accidents rose from 22,076 in 2015 to 30,269 in 2019.
    Figures from the 1st half of 2020 reveal 14,422 patients arrived in A&E as a result of slips, trips or falls between January and June, and just under half of all total admissions took place in winter.

    Mick Gallagher, Director of Independent Living, Care and Support at Trafford Housing Trust, said: "This is a significant increase and clearly illustrates how slips, trips and falls are representing a greater threat to the over 60's, and certainly resulting in larger numbers attending A&E.

    "The Coronavirus Pandemic has highlighted the strains that our wonderful NHS is under, so we should all be looking into methods and preventative measures and equipment to help minimise the risk and ensure fewer patients end up in hospital."
