AP Physio Led UCC/ED Returns clinic

Horizon 2
Covid - 19 has affected all MSK pathways not only in primary care but out of secondary care as well. A group of patients that UCC would normally pass into specialist MSK services has now got to self manage without that monitoring and rehabilitation service in place.

 

I aimed to help set up a clinic that could manage all significant soft tissue injuries in a single point of contact, allowing for advanced clinical reasoning and expert pathway knowledge to minimise patient anxiety and distress, in these worrying times.

 

We have now sort key stakeholders opinions,  progressing from the planning stage to the implementation stage, of this clinic. Going forward and if the pilot is successful it will form an integral part of the soft tissue management of patients within ELHT, and East Lancashire.

 

We are expecting to show a reduction in unnecessary T+O clinic appointments, more appropriate investigations in a timely manner. Another underlying benefit is the continued improvement in communication between ED/UCC and our T+O colleges. The links formed over this period might help springboard improvement in all minor injury and Ortho pathways.

What is needed to sustain the change?

iMSK business and operational manager buy in

ED clinical and managerial support

T+O support to allow timely onward referral for patients once seen in clinic 

What is your region?
