The National Osteoporosis Society is the only UK-wide charity supporting the millions of people affected by osteoporosis in the UK, and the health professionals that care for them. We are committed to helping people with osteoporosis and fragility fractures live the lives they want to lead and are working with leading clinicians, healthcare professionals and researchers to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the condition.
The Charity has been the leading authority on the condition in the UK for nearly 30 years and, with the help of our Royal President Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall, much has been done to raise public awareness (view our latest Annual Review 2013). We believe that everyone over 50 who breaks a bone should be assessed for osteoporosis and we are campaigning for better provision of Fracture Liaison Services as a proven, cost effective secondary fracture prevention model. This is very much aligned with Osteoporosis NZ’s FLS strategy and wider objectives identified in BoneCare 2020.
We are delighted to be recognised as a partner organisation and will continue to share knowledge and experience with Osteoporosis NZ.
