As a practice, we have so much to focus on that pro-active audits and case finding exercises can often be overlooked, particularly because finding target groups can be extremely labour intensive and difficult to execute. The Attend2 Fracture clinical toolkit creates effective search strategies based on carefully constructed algorithms, that are themselves grounded in the latest guidance. This combined with highly skilled clinical pharmacist support means that patients identified via Attend2 Fracture are reliably those in the target group. The toolkit enables you to clinically prioritise, which makes the workload manageable and clearly states how the guidance relates to each individual case. It is reassuring that real people will make real gains from this.
From the initial meetings to plan this work, through to the searches, communication with patients, and ultimately, the clinics delivered, we have identified the patients at risk of fractures and ensured those with osteoporosis are offered education, support and the best evidence based treatment options in line with current guidelines.
The service has been well received by patients and staff alike and was done quickly, efficiently and without need for extra work by ourselves! We recommend the service to other practices and thank you.

Very knowledgeable, professional and excellent service and although we felt we had a robust coding system it was quite amazing what was added on the day.

The pharmacist was an excellent clinician who involved the GPs at the practice and understood what they wanted to achieve and improved the overall patient care.The clinics ran smoothly and 35 patients attended, they had all received letters prior to the clinic and an allotted time slot. All patients were seen on time and the surgeries ran alongside the GP surgeries without any problems. An excellent service by a true professional.
