UK’s first Clinical Standards for Fracture Liaison Service (FLS)
The National Osteoporosis Society is leading an expert authoring group to develop the UK’s first Clinical Standards for Fracture Liaison Services in collaboration with the British Orthopaedic Association and British Geriatric Society. We are very grateful to everyone who provided feedback during the consultation period. The Authoring Group are now in the process of carefully reviewing the comments submitted and we hope to launch the final Standards shortly.
We would like to invite ARMA organisations to endorse the final version of the Clinical Standards.
