Looking after your bone health

Support Erewash Sound

If you could reduce the risk of breaking a bone; if you could help your own bone health to the best it can be - wouldn't you like to know how?

Would you know where to find helpful information that is easy to understand?

1 in 2 women, and 1 in 5 men over the age of 50 suffer a fracture due to poor bone health - however, there are things that we can do as individuals to reduce this risk.

NHS doctors Michelle and Hashem wish to connect various groups in our community to excellent and freely available resources.



Information Session at Ilkeston Library

A chance to learn more and ask questions with two sessions at Ilkeston Library, Friday 15th September 2023 at 2.30pm and 3.00pm.


Michelle and Hashem have put together evidence-based resources that can be delivered in various formats, including material produced by organisations such as the Royal Osteoporosis Society and the International Osteoporosis Foundation. Some people will be happy to work through the attached leaflet, which has the QR codes / web addresses for various resources. For others a talk, demonstration or involvement with an activity, may be more appropriate and they are doing this via various mediums. For specific requests or for more information please contact uhdb.bonehealth@nhs.net


Dedicated leaflet available for things you can try yourself:
