The Government has not made an assessment on the correlation between the deprivation and availability of fracture liaison services (FLS). The Fracture Liaison Service Database Annual Report 2023 examines differences in FLS performance based on age, gender and care home residence for 2021, a copy of which is attached. The Falls and Fragility Fracture Audit Programme is also planning to report on social deprivation and ethnicity in the future.
