Freda’s Fall

Developed and led by Allied Health Solutions, Freda’s Fall is the story of an elderly lady who has a fall at home and is admitted to hospital and subsequently released, with support from a variety of health professionals. Started in 2015, it was funded by Health Education England and involved a film crew, drama students, and a professional actress, Su Elliot, who has worked with, among others, Mike Leigh.
