Hip fractures are one of the commonest osteoporotic fractures in the UK and are the single greatest healthcare burden in this country. They cause considerable ill-health and death for many people. As a consequence of the importance of this injury, the NHS has set up the National Hip Fracture Database to help determine how well the NHS treats patients with a hip fracture and to try to improve this service. This study aims to record important additional patient-centred outcomes of treatment. Using this information, we aim to be able to test new treatments that may in the future improve our treatment of patients with a hip fracture.
