Healthcare professionals in Gloucestershire received the accolade for their work in designing significantly improved services for patients who have musculoskeletal (MSK) problems such as pain or injuries of joints, muscles, nerves or ligaments which support limbs, the back and neck.

Over the past two years, health and social care partners worked collaboratively with patients to understand how they could improve services to help patients live their lives to the full.

As a result, services that help people with MSK problems will offer more consistent, joined up and high quality care to help patients manage and reduce the progression of their conditions.
