Our evidence-based stepped-care approach for common musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions optimises return to work and makes a real difference to people’s lives by reducing symptoms and restoring function. Our goal, as ever, is to help our patients lead happier, healthier lives.With different options available we ensure the most effective and cost-efficient treatment is accessible to our clients and their employees.
The aim is to reduce organisations costs associated with MSK sickness absence, by assisting employees back to work, as quickly and safely as possible, but also taking into consideration a long-term support plan.
Following a Task Analysis, where we work to understand the specific role-related risks affecting an employee, we fully assess and case manage each individual through to discharge. This system is perfectly suited to patients and their employers. Our patients are given clear goals to reassure them of the progress they make while employers are kept informed.
Our MSK service is one of the few accredited by SEQOHS. Vita Health Group aligns with NICE guidelines and uses a bio-psychosocial approach with integrated case management and a fully work-focused occupational health management plan.
Our service combines the latest APP-based digital technology combined with a Nationwide network of quality assured clinics (as well as the ability to offer onsite physiotherapy if required) to provide the best possible patient journey and outcomes.
Case management and support will be provided by the Triage physiotherapist for each employee from referral through to discharge regardless of the stepped care pathway taken.
Current best practice suggests that where possible patients should be assessed for serious symptomology. In the absence of such, patients should be reassured and provided with up to date practical advice as per the Vita Health Group Clinical Evidence Guide.
The Corporate Musculoskeletal service has a Clinical Governance & Quality Lead. Our team are mentored by specialists who are highly experienced in their respective fields.
Vita Health Group’s differentiating proposition in mental health is our positive, responsive and cost-effective approach to delivering tailored support and early, evidence-based interventions.
