Provider Engagement Event for MSK Services in Berkshire West

Berkshire West are comprised of four CCGs who work in a federated arrangement across the Berkshire West area. The commissioning organisations are North and West Reading, Newbury and District, South Reading and Wokingham CCGs. The CCGs work together on four key areas/programmes: Urgent Care, Long Term Conditions, Planned Care and Joint Commissioning, The programmes are led by: • Planned Care, Newbury & District CCG • Urgent Care, North and West Reading CCG • Long Term Conditions, South Reading CCG • Joint Commissioning, Wokingham The group has implemented a robust executive management structure across all four CCGs. MSK Context MSK conditions are the largest single contributor to years of life lost to disability after the age of 30 years in the UK. Nationally 1 in 5 people consult their GP each year for a musculoskeletal condition. Over the course of the last year Berkshire West have been examining the provision for MSK services and as a part of that "discovery" have had a number of discussions and events engaging with patients, public and clinicians to help identify and determine the key issues within the current service as well as to start to collect, collate and form ideas that help us to understand what a really first class new service for patients might look like. As an overarching strategy for MSK the CCGs' aim is to deliver a fully integrated pathway for MSK. Next Steps Before the commissioners determine and or formalise the next steps for the evolution of MSK in Berkshire West we would very much like to speak directly with any and all MSK service providers both locally and across the UK in a workshop engagement setting to be held on the 15th of June. The event is planned for a 2 hour duration and will start at 4.30pm through 6.30pm. Please RSVP your attendance to and further details will be provided. We look forward to meeting with you, discussing and engaging on all things MSK.
