Connect Health, Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust and Manchester Metropolitan University launch northern event

About this Event

Manchester Metropolitan University and Connect Health, supported by Bradford District Care FT, have created this event to support NHS organisations to debate, plan and design appropriate and effective musculoskeletal (MSK) and chronic pain services for their local population.

  • Discuss the potential for partnership working to support self-management and high quality care for patients with musculoskeletal conditions
  • Debate the challenges of developing community MSK, pain and rheumatology services
  • Hear about clinical hot topics and service innovations from experienced commissioners, providers and policy makers
  • Understand the changing commissioning landscape, including the impact of Primary Care Networks, First Contact Practitioners and Integrated Care Systems on the prevention of musculoskeletal and comorbid poor health
  • Network with other CCGs and health professionals, to share problems and solutions

There are 17.8 million people in the UK living with an MSK condition - more than one in every four people. The impact of MSK conditions is often underestimated, but they are the single biggest cause of disability in the UK, and often have profound personal and societal implications. Pain is equally debilitating. Chronic pain in the UK affects between one-third and one-half of the population and almost half of people with chronic pain have a diagnosis of depression.

This event is intended to support NHS organisations plan and deliver appropriate and effective services to deal with these challenges, to support their local population.
