ENGLAND: OLDER PEOPLE INJURY ADMISSIONS LOCAL AUTHORITY INDICATORS

The Public Health Outcomes Framework includes 2 related indicators of emergency hospital admissions in older people: indicator 2.24 – ‘injuries due to falls in people aged 65 and over’ in the ‘Health Improvement’ domain and indicator 4.14 ‘hip fractures in people aged 65 and over’ in the ‘Healthcare and Premature Mortality’ domain. Each is measured separately in age groups 65 and over, 65-79 and 80 and over, and the falls in age 65 and over also includes a males/females split. The indicator is available at both upper and lower tier local authority level and trend data can be viewed for the years 2010/11, 2011/12 and 2012/13. Local Authorities can also be grouped and compared by deprivation level or type of area.
