Millions to get support quicker to overcome back pain thanks to The NHS Long Term Plan

14th March 2019

Tens of thousands of people have been helped to overcome back pain, arthritis and other muscle, bone and joint conditions without going to hospital, thanks to additional specialist care at local GP surgeries – with millions more set to benefit over the coming years as the NHS delivers on The Long Term Plan. Trials across the country have seen patients choosing to be assessed and treated for common musculoskeletal conditions by physiotherapists, with enhanced skills based in GP practices, rather than waiting to see a GP to get a referral to hospital.
