The Musculoskeletal Services Framework provides good practice guidance for the national health service on delivering care closer to home for people in the UK with bone and joint conditions. It was published as good practice guidance, and as such the Department is not mandating its implementation but continues to support the good practice promoted in the guidance.

The Department has no plans to make a specific assessment of the Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance's report "Joint Working? An audit of the implementation of the Department of Health's Musculoskeletal Services Framework".
