SOLIHULL MP Lorely Burt has attended the launch of the new Falls and Fractures Alliance to show her support for osteoporosis sufferers.

The Alliance, between Age UK and the National Osteoporosis Society, aims to reduce the rate of hospital admissions for hip fractures and fall-related injuries among older people and has produced an osteoporosis suit to teach people how severe the condition can be.

Mrs Burt, who is president of the Solihull Osteoporosis Society, said: “The suit is a fantastic way of allowing the fit and healthy to truly understand how debilitating osteoporosis can be and how vital it is to help sufferers feel comfortable and safe.”
