Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group (CWS), has a GP registered population of 498 000, intends to seek through competition a prime provider of integrated musculoskeletal services. For the purposes of this competition a Prime Provider will be the contractual partner of the CCG that will be solely accountable for the single MSK budget, the MSK patients and the entire MSK integrated care service. The intended financial envelope over a five year period is expected in the range of £190m – GBP 215m. The contract will include an element of gain-share that will be linked to specific outcomes.
The aim of the Musculoskeletal Integrated Care Service is the holistic provision of care along the entire MSK patient treatment pathway, equitably across all areas of Coastal West Sussex, specifically:
— A single point of access and triage for all MSK referrals;
— Adult community MSK physical therapies that must include, but is not restricted to, ‘extended scope’ Physiotherapy, Osteopath and Chiropractor services.
— Community MSK service, to include as a minimum all services previously provided by the Musculoskeletal Assessment Triage Treatment team (MATT) which is a specialist MSK assessment and treatment service supporting primary care and reducing demand on secondary care. It is primarily staffed by Extended Scope Physiotherapists.
— Elective Orthopaedics (including elective surgery, but excluding emergency trauma care)
— Rheumatology (all services)
— Chronic Pain, which must include (but is not restricted to) medical interventions and treatment, specialist nursing, psychological therapies and support for patients to self-manage.
The integrated services will be more effectively coordinated and the Prime Provider will be accountable for the entire MSK patient journey, rather than individual services taking responsibility only for their own service. This will drive an integrated joined up way of working.
