National Osteoporosis Society

In 1986 doctors at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Disease in Bath were concerned that people were unaware of the risks of osteoporosis. Medical practice on diagnosis, treatment and prevention was patchy. The National Osteoporosis Society (NOS) was launched in a blaze of publicity with backing from the Department of Health and the Chief Medical Officer. Linda Edwards has been the charity's director from the start.
