Public Health England’s Active 10
Over 6.3 million adults aged 40 to 60 do not achieve 10 minutes of continuous brisk walking over the course of a month and are missing out on important health benefits. The new One You physical activity campaign is encouraging adults to build 10 minutes continuous brisk walking into their day as a simple way to improve their health, which could save the NHS over £0.9 billion per year.

Whole System MSK Regional Events to help transform MSK care outcomes and Quality of Care.
Working in partnership with ARMA, the NHS England Long Term Conditions (LTCs) Unit, are sponsoring a series of regional launch pad events that supports a joined up approach to transforming Musculoskeletal (MSK) care.
The practical events will bring together regional and national leaders and organisations including RightCare and GIRFT, patient groups and local MSK stakeholders to focus on what the regions are most challenged by and potential solutions by sharing examples of best practice and evidence including national tools and resources and agree local priorities and actions that would maximise opportunities and maintain momentum.
The events are aimed at STP and CCG leads, Regional programme leads, regional and local professional leads, MSK clinicians, MSK Healthcare providers and local patient groups.
Musculoskeletal toolkit launched to help employers support people with musculoskeletal conditions
ARMA worked with Public Health England and Business in the Community to develop a new toolkit for employers in the workplace, which launched at the Health and Wellbeing at Work Conference in the NEC today (7 March 2017). Musculoskeletal conditions are an important consideration for businesses as they are a leading cause of pain and disability in the UK, affecting many employees.
The toolkit draws together information for employers to support staff in the prevention, early identification, management and adaptation for people affected by musculoskeletal conditions. The musculoskeletal toolkit is a simple step-by-step guide dealing with back, neck, muscle and joint pain at work. It will help employers access the best free resources that are available for their organisation and employees.
You can access the toolkit from the Business in the Community website.
New ARMA Leaflet
ARMA has released an A5 leaflet to support its activity, promoting good musculoskeletal health.
The leaflet features key messages on what is needed to provide the right care for musculoskeletal conditions,
in the right place, at the right time.
ARMA is the alliance providing a collective voice for the arthritis and musculoskeletal community in the UK.
Together, ARMA and its member organisations work to improve quality of life for all those living with musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders in the UK.
We aim to foster co-operation between charities and professional organisations, working to enhance understanding and mutual support between individuals and organisational bodies.
