The CSP ‘Hipsprint’ audit project

The CSP needs members to help with a national audit of hip fracture rehabilitation services.

File 146284

The CSP has commissioned the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) to undertake a sprint audit of hip fracture rehabilitation services throughout England and Wales as part of the existing work of the National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD).

We need members providing hip fracture rehabilitation care in acute and community services to contribute data to this study to help influence future service development.

Watch CSP's Head of Research and Development, Ruth ten Hove, talk about why we need your help 

Register now

Physiotherapists in over 190 Trusts and Boards have already registered. It’s still not too late to join the project. Complete the registration form and return it to

Got any questions?

We’ve put together some information on the project to help get you understand the work we are doing and how to complete the audit. If you have any questions about  completing the audit please contact directly, not the CSP.

Data Collection

The audit collects data sets in three different parts of the rehabilitation pathway. You will only collect data for the sector you work in.

Each data form is one-side of A4 paper with tick box answers. It was designed to take no more than 60 seconds to complete, possibly much less. You can delegate form completion to someone else if you need to.

Having problems participating?

NHFD data collection is already mandatory for Trusts/Boards and this sprint audit should not be an onerous or overly time consuming activity. If you are having difficulty participating in the audit, please contact us on for help.

How you  can help

We need to ensure we have a contact in each of the Trusts/ Health Boards that provide hip fracture rehabilitation.

  • Service managers: make sure your key physiotherapists across all your sites are engaged.
  • Clinicians: make sure your Team leader and/or service manager is aware of this project. Contact your peers on other hospital sites within your Trust and/or Board group.
  • Make links: find out the name and contact of the physiotherapist/s who lead on providing rehabilitation in the next stage of the hip fracture pathway after patients have left your part of the care pathway.

Hip Fracture Rehabilitation pathways

The pathway of care may influence the outcome of hip fracture rehabilitation. Send us your examples of your pathway of hip fracture care across acute, intermediate and community care so we can understand how it may be possible to influence future developments.
