Community at the heart of care

Do you, your family, or someone you care for live with a musculoskeletal condition?

The Big Conversation is a chance for you to give your views on what great muscle, bone, joint, and tendon health looks like for people and how we can improve musculoskeletal healthcare in the community.

Everyone is welcome to join us. We want to hear from patients, community leaders, commissioners, and MSK colleagues alike. Your involvement ensures we can shape our services to better meet the needs of people experiencing problems with MSK health.

Our focus will be on healthcare in the community and therefore we will not be discussing individual patient conditions or treatments at the event.
