The Musculoskeletal Audit
The Musculoskeletal (MSk) Audit provides data to complement the work of various hospital time-to-treatment teams by identifying rate-limiting steps for orthopaedic treatment. This will help orthopaedic departments meet their December 2011 Referral to Treatment target of patients waiting no longer than 18 weeks from receipt of a referral (e.g. from a GP) until starting treatment.
