Employment Structure

It is helpful to be aware that your colleagues may be employed by a different partner organisation than you – for example an SCFT Receptionist may work alongside a Here employed AP.

Because of this parts of your induction and HR processes may be different to some of your colleagues. However, you are all part of the Sussex MSK Partnership and are working together in accordance with the visions and values of the service.

Patient Care Pathways

Our service is broken down into the four elements of care. The elements are highlighted below:

Self-Care and Supported Self-Management
Primary Care (GPs, Pharmacies)
Community Based Specialist MSK Care
Hospital Care

How We Work Asset Board-03
Clinical Pathways

In 2016 the SMSKP decided to split the admin team into the relevant clinical pathways.

This assists with the day to day running of the service and means that when patients call into the service they speak to a member of team who will be more specialised to assist with their query.

Upper Limb (Shoulder & Elbow and Hand & Wrist)
Lower Limb (Hip & Knee and Foot & Ankle)
Pain & Rheumatology
Musculoskeletal Assessment & Rehabilitation Service (Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, & Occupational Therapy)
