New framework for early access to support for musculoskeletal conditions

Musculoskeletal conditions are the single biggest cause of disability in the UK, accounting for 30% of GP consultations in England.

A new framework published by NHS England and others is designed to help manage MSK problems appropriately at the first point of contact, and help to relieve pressures on primary and secondary care. The framework should be of interest to commissioners, employers, regulators and practitioners.
