Aims and Objectives of service
The MOSAIC service aims to undertake the assessment and management of a range of musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal problems (e.g. orthopaedics, spinal, chronic pain & CFS/ME).
The MOSAIC service brings together the expertise of experienced physiotherapists, occupational therapists, hospital consultants, pain practitioners, CFS/ME practitioners, pharmacists and well-being practitioners. Together, the service works with patients to coordinate care around their individual needs and offers them access to a broad range of interventions. Patients are seen by the most appropriate clinician according to their needs, at the right time and in a community location close to their home.
Following an assessment within the service, patients may be referred for further diagnostics or offered a range of interventions specific to their needs. Typically this may include musculoskeletal physiotherapy or occupational therapy, individual biopsychosocial treatment, pain or CFS/ME management programmes, self-management workshops, medication review clinics, injections if indicated or onward referral for surgery in hospital if required.
The MOSAIC service also works closely with other healthcare and voluntary sector organisations, providing access to services such as psychological therapies or exercise groups in the community. Our focus is on education and self-management support to best help you manage your condition in the long term.
