The County Durham Integrated MSK Service (CD IMS) is a single point of access for all MSK referrals

We provide a comprehensive MSK assessment, treatment and management service in a range of community settings that are accessible to patients

We support patients to self-manage and empower them to maximise any advice or treatment prescribed for the best possible outcomes

We implement Shared Decision Making at all stages of the pathway to ensure patients are fully engaged in their treatment plan, and take ownership of their condition, as early as possible

We can provide comprehensive and multi-disciplinary investigations and diagnostics, where appropriate

'Every aspect of my emergency care was dealt with quickly, efficiently and professionally with full explanations and compassion from all staff involved'.
