Please note new dates for consultations, to engage as many local voluntary sector organisations and service users as possible: two online events via Teams on Tuesday 22 June from 4pm-6pm and Thursday 24 June from 10am-12pm.
Take part in this consultation seeking to improve patient pathways and journeys to improved health
Are you an organisation that works with people with limited mobility, joint pain, back problems, knee and hip problems or a range of physical and neurological conditions that give rise to musculoskeletal conditions? The Berkshire West MSK Partnership want to engage with as many local voluntary sector organisations as possible to help them to co-design and deliver additional community support for people with musculoskeletal conditions.
Carl Davies, Director of MSK/Ortho at Berkshire West Integrated Care Partnership, said:
Musculoskeletal conditions (MSK) is an umbrella term that includes over 200 different conditions affecting the human frame, for example joints, bones, muscles, soft tissue problems, rheumatology, chronic pain and orthopaedics to name just a few. A large number of GP appointments are MSK related and we are committed to providing our local people with a wide range of services that deliver the right care, at the right time, in the right place.
Conscious of the need to consider the wider, social factors of health, we are keen to ensure we build something that reaches patients who may traditionally fall between clinical services and who may need additional help i.e. receive social support, require further education regarding their condition or information and signposting to existing services. What this looks like is down to the service users, and those who may currently support them outside of traditional clinical services.
Further information on the possible profile of potential service users can be found in an appendix to this invitation here.
- Confirm your attendance by Friday 18 June.
