Resources for patients and families
The My Hip My Voice project has developed resources for patients, families and friends.
These resources have been developed to help you understand what to expect when you or a family member have been admitted to hospital with a broken hip.
They were developed from conversations with people who have lived experience of a broken hip, either as a patient or a family member.
The My Hip My Voice participant information sheet can be found here.

We recognise and acknowledge people with a lived experience of hip fracture - patients, their families, and carers.
Their voices are powerful. Their contribution is vital to the work of improving health care.
