Musculoskeletal (MSK) and Physiotherapy services

NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) plans and buys healthcare for local people.  The CCG wants to improve healthcare for people across the district. We want to improve how Musculoskeletal (MSK) and Physiotherapy services are provided locally. 

Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions affect joints, bones and muscles. This can include autoimmune diseases and back pain, but also pain or stiffness in your joints.

Physiotherapy services help to restore body movement and function when you are affected by injury, illness or disability.  

This covers services like:

Orthopaedics, including procedures like joint replacement or carpal tunnel surgery

Physiotherapy, including advice, exercises and hands on therapy to heal, prevent injury and improve conditions.  It also includes advanced physiotherapists who do assessments and treatment, like joint injections and ultrasound

Pain management relating to MSK condition

We would like to hear about your experiences of using these services locally to help us understand how we can improve these services.
