Falls lifting service
In partnership with NHS Blackpool and NWAS (Northwest Ambulance Service) Vitaline provide a falls lifting service for people who have fallen but who are uninjured using specialist lifting equipment avoiding the need for an ambulance call. Following a successful lift Vitaline has established an advice, signposting and referral service for people who have experienced a fall, with the aim of reducing the risk of further falls.
Vitaline works with the NHS to support discharge from hospital, working with the discharge team and social care to manage risks in the home to enable patients to return home as quickly as possible.
Equipment in the home
