“Best thing about Connect – for me it’s the opportunity to develop”

Connect Health is one of the largest independent providers of Musculoskeletal (MSK) services in the UK, employing over 200 MSK physiotherapists across the country.

Our primary focus is to provide quality, patient-centred care across all our services. We see more patients with MSK problems than any other NHS provider in the UK, and our patient-centred care pathways mean that people see the right clinician, at the right time, in a community-based location that is convenient to them.

As an organisation owned and led by clinicians, with over 25 years of experience in delivering services to the NHS our exclusive focus on MSK allows us to remain innovative and responsive to deliver clinical quality with a patient-centred approach.

Our Services in Herts Valley and Essex

Herts Valley CCG have commissioned an integrated MSK service to be delivered by Connect Health across the Herts Valley region. This is an exciting, new, integrated service that provides a single-point of access for NHS patients and enables a seamless, efficient MSK patient journey.

The integrated service design allows clinicians to work together to deliver seamless and evidence-based care for patients and enables inter-disciplinary learning.
