News from Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Sustainability and Transformation Partnership say:
“These are exciting times for healthcare in Shropshire, and Telford and Wrekin, as we seek to improve health outcomes and make services safe and sustainable for decades to come.
One of the big pieces of work already under way is to look at the pathway for patients needing care for musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions – ie health problems which affect the joints, bones and muscles.
Together with MSK patients, GPs and specialist clinicians, we have developed a plan to transform local MSK services and are currently commissioning a new integrated MSK service. We believe these will improve outcomes and experience of healthcare for all people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin”.
Two focus groups have been planned, one in Telford & Wrekin (17 October) and one in Shropshire (31 October), to talk to you about these proposals, explain them to you and ask for your input to help us shape them in more detail. Your feedback is very important and will help us decide on our final model.
All adult patients or carers who use (or have used) MSK services in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin are invited to attend.
Details of both focus groups are shown below. It would appreciate it if you could register to attend
Telford & Wrekin Patient Group meeting will take place at Meeting Point House, Southwater Square, Telford TF3 4HS on Wednesday 17th October from 4 pm-6 pm
Shropshire Patient Focus Group meeting will take place at Shrewsbury Town Football Club, Oteley Road, Shrewsbury, SY2 6ST on Thursday 31st October 2019 from 3 pm-5 pm
