1️⃣.1️⃣ Scary MSK (Tendon, Joint, Bone & Muscle) Facts
The term for tendons, joints and bone is Muscular Skeletal, is often abbreviated to MSK.
#️⃣ 1 in 4 people in the UK have an MSK conditions
#️⃣ MSK accounts for 12% of all medical negligence claims.
#️⃣ 8.9 million sick days a year are lost to a muscle or bone condition,
#️⃣ with the health and social care profession in the top three of professions being unable to work because of a MSK condition. Yes, the irony that the people we rely on to make us better when we are unwell, maybe suffering because of a lack of education and poor xray reporting?
This is NHS Englands five year plan to improve MSK conditions in England. But how can improvements be made when clinicians cannot tell the difference between joint damage and tendon damage?
1️⃣.2️⃣ Why i hold NELCCG responsible
1️⃣.3️⃣ North East London Clinical Commissioning Group failures
North East London Clinical Commissioning Group wasted £17,500 of NHS cash on unnecessary medical appointments and xrays and scans because the health services they buy, couldn’t recognise the difference between damage to bone joints and tendons that attach joints to muscles.
They wasted another £6,000 on inept complaint investigations. Where I was blamed and shamed for trying to improve the quality of the clinical services they buy from Barts Health, the Homerton Hospital and East London Foundation Trust.
2️⃣ The final port for Health Justice in the UK is concerned about the poor quality of medical imaging reporting
The Parliamentary and Health Ombuds recently released a report highlighting the poor quality of reporting unexpected findings in xrays and scans in the UK and making recimmendations. My research suggests that the problem is much more widespread and expected common findings of conditions such as unraveling of tendons or autoimmune joint damage is often confused with the joint damage condition of osteoarthritis. Here is a link to the Ombuds report.https://www.ombudsman.org.uk/publications/unlocking-solutions-imaging-working-together-learn-failings-nhs

if you have any questions, please email NELCCG on
4️⃣ Not convinced that you need to get involved?
✴️This is about making the NHS better for all.
✴️This is about using cash allocated for health treatment in health treatments and not on treatment Complaints.
✴️ This is about stopping treatment delays and getting the diagnosis right the first time.
✴️ The health services provided by North East London Clinical Commissioning Group spent £17,500 on unnecessary treatment. Imaging how much treatment £17,500 could buy?
✴️ These services spent at least another £6,000 of NHS cash trying to humiliate and intimidate me into agreeing with them. Imagine the health treatment £6,000 could buy?
✴️ Once I received a correct diagnosis, it cost £75 to treat.
▶️ Yes, that was right, only £75
▶️ They wasted £23,425.
➡️ How many more NHS cash are they wasting because they don’t listen?

6️⃣ Still sitting on the fence?
Thats Okay! Will you Read the many attempts I made to present NELCCG, Barts Health, the Homerton and Newham MSK services with my concerns supported by a body of facts from well respected international health experts. As you wish to reconsider?
▶️ A 2nd opinion of the xrays from a radiologist in 2017 said more tests were needed as it could be either the wear and tear of osteoarthritis or the kind where the body attacks the joints. This is the serious.
Let me repeat that. The largest NHS trusts in the UK, Barts Health, could not tell the difference between images of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. If this huge Trust can’t tell the difference. Can any of the other hospitals in the UK?
▶️ NELCCG ignored my concerns about the slow or even missed diagnosis of people with rheumatoid arthritis in the Borough of Newham in 2017, 2018 and 2019. When they refused to listen to my concerns and banned me from their complaints process for ‘abusing’ the process.
✴️ Spoiler Alert, I don’t have rheumatoid arthritis, but you may ✴️

✴️ Confusion between joint damage and muscles damage
▶️ As if that isn’t a big enough scandal, as the xrays and scans were wrongly reported upon. I was still being treated for damage to my joints AKA osteoarthritis. When I had damaged my tendons to the extend that the fibres of the tendons were unravelling. Kind of like a shoe lace or tear in a pair of jeans.
▶️ And sadly, this ‘move and walk’ treatment plan causes more damage to the tendons. As walking on and exercising on unravelling tendons made the condition of the tendons worse. I liken it to when your jeans begin to fray at the crotch. What’s even more shocking, is this was a treatment plan was put together by the Newham Muscle & Skeleton service. (Newham MSK). Where I was in ‘treatment’ for 15 months.
▶️ FYI, Newham MSK is provided by a collaboration of Barts Health, the Homerton Hospital, ELFT NHS and I think the private provider of BMI Healthcare.
▶️ Acting in what I still believed was in the best interests of publics health, I brought this to the attention of The Managing Director of what was Newham CCG, but is now Tower Hamlets, Newham and Waltham Forest Integrated Care Partnership. Naively and i stress naively, assuming that this organisation would want to know that they were not being given value for money from these hospitals and community Trusts. Boy, was I stupid to think that.
▶️ As my top notch evidence was ignored, as was I and when i insisted and persisted, I was labelled a persistent complainer and banned from the NHS Complaints process by NELCCG and NHS England. Which allowed my GP Practice, the CQC, HSIB and the GMC to ignore me as well.
▶️ Today I live in constant pain. For a condition that was avoidable and would have responsed to rest and treatment if it had been diagnosed back in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, or 2019.
▶️ I have nowhere else to turn to with my concerns that people are being wrongly diagnosed and suffering avoidable harm and pain because NEL CCG continues to cover up the poor standard of healthcare from Barts Health, the Homerton Hospital and ELFT community Trust. So, I have turned to the only option open to me. A solo protest for one hour a day. Where i will sit or stand outside of the offices of NELCCG, who are based in the Unex Tower in Stratford, London. Until NELCCG takes my concerns seriously and puts an action plan into place to improve the quality of their xray departments and MSK and other physio services
