The Fife Health & Social Care Adult Musculoskeletal (MSK) Physiotherapy Service has been widely acknowledged as embracing and demonstrating the recent drive for health and social care integration.  This is evidenced through a contemporary proactive management structure, a central referral appointment service, equitable service delivery, robust quality assurance standards that not only meet, but set national standards.


At its core the service strives for optimal person-centred care, safe and quality improvement.  These aims are promoted through adopting the principles of value-based health care, staff development and optimal organisational performance.

The service prides itself on promoting transformational leadership; embracing key philosophies such as distributed leadership, management/leadership visibility, a learning and development culture, social capital investment, promotion of staff professional development and governance, and the adoption of a personal outcomes approach to collaborate with service users and staff.
