The CSP is viewed as an ‘enabler’ for the delivery of a shared strategy supporting the prevention of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions across England.
MSK conditions are a big issue for individuals, employers and the NHS, which spends approximately £5 billion each year treating and supporting people with MSK.
Public Health England (PHE), along with partners and system collaborators, has published a five-year framework for preventing MSK conditions across the life-course.
These include that:
- PHE wants government and agencies to integrate MSK into their approaches to multi-morbidity, multiple long term conditions and frailty.
- will advocate for comprehensive data collection and support surveillance of MSK conditions across the population
