The Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance
General Election 2015 Manifesto
MSK conditions represent an area where many of the biggest wins lie for both health and social care. Their cost, impact, prevalence and degree of co-morbidity makes these conditions an important “entry point” for effectively tackling wider priorities, particularly in public health. They also provide an opportunity for achieving effective person-centred care coordinated care for people with long-term conditions.
These conditions represent some of the biggest “wins” for health and social care
As the UK population ages and the number of people living with multiple long-term conditions grow, the burden of MSK conditions is set to increase. The last six years alone have seen an increase of nearly 300% in hip and knee replacements, for instance. Yet MSK conditions remain chronically under-prioritised in the NHS.
