From NHSE: ''We are pleased to be able to share the news that ‘Improving Lives – the Work, Health and Disability Green Paper’ was published on the 31 October 2016 by the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department of Health and reflects the Government’s new and ambitious approach to work, health and disability.

We want to spark a far-reaching, national debate on the issues and the proposals set out in the document, ensuring that we listen to you so that we can develop our programme of work and understand the role others have to play in driving action forward.

How can you as a service user be involved and help shape your future services?

The Work Health Unit would like to work closely with people working in or needing  Musculo-skeletal services  in order to identify how and where current services and support can be improved as we start developing policy proposals for improving MSK services for both service users and professionals.

Looking widely across the current range of services and provision of support for people with MSK, we would like to discuss with service users your views on;

  • how do you access MSK services and how can this access be improved?
  • how can you be assisted to stay in work/return to work after being away from work due to your condition?
  • how can practitioners (non-specialist health, employability professionals, work coaches) help you with work and health issues?
  • how MSK services can provide you with the help and care  you need and link with  employment support to deliver a more joined-up service for you.

This webinar is part of a public consultation which runs until 17th February 2017 and we would welcome your input.  An online survey hosted on Citizen Space also provides a simple and easily accessible way to respond to all consultation questions.
