Connect Health: Raising the quality of MSK community service provision


14 / 06 / 2017

Hammersmith and Fulham originally started a piece of work to look at community MSK alongside the five inner north-west London boroughs.

There was a need to provide better health services out of hospital and ensure more efficient use of limited resources. But this was difficult to achieve and fragmented, delivered by a mixed provision comprising hospital-based or hospital-run services in community clinics, community-run services and some practice-based services.

And there were issues around the capacity of the existing community provider as a long-standing contract, in place for over five years, had not been reviewed.

So Hammersmith and Fulham Clinical Commissioning Group carried out a procurement exercise to find a way of tackling the issues.
