Help shape our new musculoskeletal (MSK) service for Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin at a patient focus group

Information shared on behalf of NHS CCG

These are exciting times for healthcare in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, as we seek to improve health outcomes and make services safe and sustainable for decades to come.

One of the big pieces of work already under way is to look at the pathway for patients needing care for musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions – ie health problems which affect the joints, bones and muscles.

Together with MSK patients, GPs and specialist clinicians, we have developed a plan to transform local MSK services and are currently commissioning a new integrated MSK service. We believe these will improve outcomes and experience of healthcare for all people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin.

We are holding two focus groups, one in Telford & Wrekin (17 October)  and one in Shropshire (31 October), to talk to you about these proposals, explain them to you and ask for your input to help us shape them in more detail. Your feedback is very important and will help us decide on our final model.

All adult patients or carers who use (or have used) MSK services in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin are invited to attend.

Please see below details of both focus groups, we would appreciate it if you could register to attend
