MSK Musculoskeletal assessment triage and treatment services update

April 2022

Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (OCCG) recently concluded a comprehensive procurement process to select a new provider for the Musculoskeletal Assessment Triage and Treatment (MSK MATT) service in Oxfordshire.  The chosen provider is Connect Health which will take over the service from 1 October 2022, when the current provider Healthshare’s contract ends.

The procurement process was informed by extensive patient feedback and input from the Pain Management, Orthopaedics, and Rheumatology services at Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) and Oxfordshire GPs.

OCCG has now begun an extended period of transition during which time it will work with Connect Health and Healthshare to ensure that the MSK service continues smoothly for all patients.
