variety of places.

advice on common MSK problems and some simple exercises. The
information can also be printed by people with MSK problems or

All of the information has been produced with input from patient groups,

All callers to the MSK National Advice & Triage Service pilot are being
referred to this information, but it is hoped that this information will
now be used by all boards with all MSK patients at first contact and
referred to during any intervention. This will mean consistent and
quality assured self management information is available to all.
*The most up to date versions of this information will always be online.
