Physiotherapy Services – MSK Hub and Integrated Pathways

  

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future.


Coventry Integrated MSK Pathway Update December 2021

From 1st December 2021, UHCW is now the lead employer for the MSK service in Coventry, following the transfer of the MSK Physiotherapy Team at Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Partnership Trust.

Patients should not see any change in service, with Community Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy services continuing to be delivered from City of Coventry Health Centre.

Patients with any appointment queries should contact UHCW on 024 76 964140.

We are aiming to transfer the E-referral service digitally at the point of transfer which will mean there is no break in service.

First Contact Practitioner clinics are now operating out of 29 GP practices across Coventry, with over 3500 patients cared for since April 2021.

MSK Clinical pathways

Please check GP Gateway (follow link for MSK Chapter Page) for changes to the MSK clinical pathways.

Following discussions, these have been updated to reflect the integrated MSK service with the aim of improving the patient journey and ensuring they are referred to the right place at the right time.

There will likely be a further update as the MSK service becomes more integrated and the MDT hub develops.
