Who we are
Sussex MSK Partnership East is the local NHS organisation that manages the care and treatment of patients with bone, joint and muscle conditions (musculoskeletal or MSK for short). Our service also provides care and support for Rheumatology patients and those with chronic pain.
The service was commissioned in 2015 by the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) that manage health services in the majority of East Sussex (High Weald, Lewes and Havens CCG and Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford CCG). Their aim was to make MSK care more efficient, cost effective and more accessible for patients in this area.
MSK covers a huge range of conditions, many of which are difficult to diagnose. By bringing different specialisms together we can ensure that patients receive prompt and appropriate care that focuses on their individual needs and situations.
