NHS Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) want to know about your experience of using musculoskeletal (MSK) services. This review is open from Wednesday 4th January 2017 & closes on Friday 20th January 2017.

NHS Telford and Wrekin CCG is the name for the local General practitioner led organisation that purchases Healthcare on behlaf of the population of Telford & Wrekin.

MSK services support adults with over 200 different conditions & injuries affecting joints, muscles, soft tissue injuries and bones and covers individual services like Rheumatology, Orthopaedics,  Chronic Pain & physiotherapy.

In October 2015 Telford and Wrekin CCG implemented a new service model for people with MSK conditions. The model is community based and delivers a triage, assessment and treatment service for all MSK conditions.  The change was put in place to deliver more care away from hospital settings where appropriate.  Telford Musculoskeletal Service (TeMS) is the organisation commissioned to deliver the service on our behalf.  As the service has been in place for twelve months the CCG is collecting patient feedback as part of a standard service review.  The results of this feedback will not automatically be used to make changes to the service.  However if the feedback received indicated changes were required, a consultation period would apply to any adjustments being carried out.
