Description:

The National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD), a web-based hip fracture audit, was set up as a collaborative venture by the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) and the British Geriatrics Society (BGS) and launched along with the BOA/BGS Blue Book on the care of patients with fragility fracture in 2007. In 2009 the NHFD was recognised by the National Clinical Audit Advisory Group as eligible for central funding as a national clinical audit, with resultant threeyear support from the Health Quality Improvement Partnership.
 
This publication, the 2010 NHFD National Report, describes the considerable progress made since that documented in the Preliminary National Report in 2009. It provides details on the case-mix, care and outcomes of 36,556 cases of hip fracture from the 129 hospitals that submitted more than 100 cases over the year 1st April 2009 to 31st March 2010; and from three smaller hospitals with fewer than 100 cases, but with 100% of cases submitted. This report shows how the care provided matches up to the standards set out in the Blue Book, and thus offers a larger and much more detailed - but still incomplete - picture of hip fracture care in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Channel Islands in 2009/10.
