Focus on: Musculoskeletal Interface Services

Focus on: Musculoskeletal Interface Services
The aim of this document is to highlight the key characteristics of best practice musculoskeletal (MSK) interface services. The document is intended for health communities (both commissioners and providers) wishing to set up an MSK interface service and for those who have already established such a service to identify further areas for development.

Through observing a number of MSK interface services in England, in particular those with pioneering models of initial patient assessment in the pathway, the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement (NHS Institute) has built up a picture of the ideal characteristics of such a service. It is clear that these services, when successfully implemented, can provide considerable benefit to all MSK patients and this document provides a resource for local implementation. The ultimate aim is to reduce variation in practice and provide effective and sustainable care for patients with MSK conditions.
