Are you or someone close to you aged 65 years or over?


Healthcare Inspectorate Wales and Age Cymru would like to hear your views on slips, trips and falls.


  • Do you know how they happen, and how the risk of having one can be lowered?
  • Do you know what services you can expect to receive if you are at increased risk of falls?
  • If you have experienced a fall, what happened next for you?
    • We are interested in relatively ‘minor’ falls right the way through to those that resulted in admission to hospital

We would be very grateful if you would come along to our focus group and have a friendly, informal discussion with our volunteer facilitators, all of whom are eager to connect with you and hear what you have to say.


Your views will be used anonymously to inform a report being published by Healthcare Inspectorate Wales later in the year for the attention of the Welsh Government, in response to their ‘A Healthier Wales’ strategy.


The first focus group is taking place at 10.30am on 26 February at: Age Cymru Gwynedd a Môn, Y Cartref, Bontnewydd, Caernarfon, Gwynedd  LL54 7UW


The Second focus group is taking place at 10.30am on 28 February at: Stow Park Community Centre, Brynhyfryd Road, Newport NP20 4FX
