Bone and Joint Week 2019

Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions are the most prevalent long-term condition and the largest cause of years lived with disability.

MSK is the most common recorded diagnosis for hospital admissions and one in five people consult a GP about MSK conditions every year. Bone and Joint Week, 12-20 October, raises awareness of early diagnosis and prevention and supports more people to live well. This year the campaign will promote tools and sources of information for commissioners and service managers.
