Best In Class Approach To Managing Lower Limb Joint Problems

Clackmannanshire and Stirling HSCP

People with knee problems routinely look for healthcare information and services through their GP. However, most degenerative joint problems do not need a GP to diagnose and direct treatment. People can be empowered to better manage their own recovery.

This project is part of a Best in Class whole system approach which reaches across the prevention, primary care and secondary care spectrum to support people with lower limb joint problems.

By the end of May 2019 we will provide a personal outcomes approach for 1500 people with lower limb joint problems in Clackmannanshire.

We aim to reduce GP contacts by 1500 and reduce orthopaedic and physiotherapy referrals for lower limb problems by 10%.
