National Osteoporosis Society

Osteoporosis helpline

0845 450 0230

9am - 5pm Mon-Fri


As the leading UK charity dedicated to improving the prevention, treatment and diagnosis of osteoporosis, we are strongly committed to supporting the work of health care professionals in this field.

We want your views



From providing resources on a wide range of aspects relating to osteoporosis, to Training courses and events, to our Osteoporosis Conference which brings together the largest gathering of UK and overseas health professional delegates, there are many ways in which we can help you. 

Comprehensive information on all aspects of osteoporosis; bone health; fragile bones and fragility fractures is provided in the section on osteoporosis.

You can also contact our Helpline service, by telephone, email or letter. The service is available for you as well as your patients. It is staffed by a team of nurses with specialist knowledge in osteoporosis and bone health who can provide you with evidence based information and will discuss current best practice. The nurses are advised by medical and scientific experts in the field.

The telephone helpline is open weekdays between 9am and 5pm (excluding bank holidays) on 0845 450 0230. You can email the helpline nurses@nos.org.uk .

More information about the service is provided on the helpline page.
