A NEW fracture liaison service has been launched.

The service was launched at an event at St Peter’s Pavilion in Hindley last week by Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust (Bridgewater) in partnership with Wigan Clinical Commissioning Group.

The aim of the service is to promote information about bone health and osteoporosis in the borough to help prevent future fractures in patients and ultimately reduce hospital admissions.
