Holding answer received on 06 July 2020

Improving musculoskeletal health is a key priority for this Government and we made specific commitments to tackle musculoskeletal (MSK) ill-health last year in ‘Advancing our health: Prevention in the 2020s’. Public Health England and NHS England and NHS Improvement are working with professional bodies and third sector stakeholders to promote MSK health. They are providing evidence-based interventions and resources to support people with MSK conditions and preventative strategies to those at risk of developing MSK conditions during the COVID-19 outbreak.
