Falls assessment forms
All falls assessment forms have been standardised and agreed by healthcare professionals across Southwark and Lambeth. Therefore, regardless of where the client is initially assessed, assessment and referral processes and subsequent access to services should be the same. Copies of the assessment forms are available to healthcare professionals to download:
Non healthcare professionals (including clients/carers/family members)
A basic falls assessment can be completed by anyone who is worried about someone who is having falls, or can be completed by anyone having falls. The questions are very simple and a medical background is not necessary to complete it. The basic assessment form has been designed for residents of Southwark and Lambeth and enables them to decide which services (if necessary) to contact for further help.
