This information is not collected centrally.

A range of professionals across a number of specialties are involved in providing treatment for osteoporosis in both primary and secondary care settings.

Many of these health professionals will deal with osteoporosis alongside other conditions. It is therefore not possible to identify either specific units or exact numbers of professionals involved.
