Welcome to the National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD)

The NHFD is a national clinical audit project designed to facilitate improvements in the quality of hip fracture care.

2015 Annual report

This report considers the care of patients with hip fracture, but it also has much wider implications. Hip fracture is an ideal marker condition with which to examine and challenge the quality and outcome of the care offered to frail and older patients by the modern NHS.

New: 2015 annual report supplement - An analysis of 30-day mortality in 2014

This year, we were unable to include mortality results in our annual report as in previous years. ONS date of death data were finally available in November 2015, which enabled this analysis. This report complements the descriptions of performance and patient outcomes in our 2015 annual report.
