CCG musculoskeletal care revamp slashes waiting times

A CCG pilot to reform local musculoskeletal care has cut waiting times and could save the NHS money.

The scheme led by Newcastle West CCG to redirect muscular and joint problems to community services rather than hospitals helped the local NHS treat 62% more patients.

The CCG could make savings of £220,000 per year if the scheme was applied across its whole population.
