Musculoskeletal (MSK) services

The NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) covering Calderdale, Greater Huddersfield and North Kirklees are committed to continuously improving the healthcare available to all the people living across the district. As part of this continued work, they wanted to look at how Musculoskeletal (MSK) services are provided locally.

MSK services support adults with over 200 different conditions affecting joints, bones, muscles and soft tissues and covers individual services like:

  • Orthopaedics
  • Rheumatology
  • Physiotherapy
  • MSK Pain Management
  • Podiatry services
  • Occupational Therapy

As part of this process, we have asked for information about people’s experience of these services and seeking their opinions about future services.

We held an event on Thursday 17 July 2014, which yielded lots of useful information, and we are grateful to everyone who took part. We also developed a survey, which was based on the questions we discussed at the event. We very much appreciate the contribution of those people who took the time to share their thoughts.

The findings of all this activity to gather people’s views can be found here.
