A Falls Prevention and Monitoring demonstrator will be deployed in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR). This will build upon a well-established LLR Falls Group and links with existing plans to introduce new integrated falls prevention services. The LLR STP has confirmed support.

Lincolnshire colleagues have also flagged a potential interest to host a demonstrator site and discussions are taking place about the possibility of adding Lincolnshire as a second demonstrator site if additional funding can be secured.
