Joint Pain Advisor: Who we work with

JPA is a flexible model of care, delivered as a stand-alone service or complementing existing roles and services across a variety of health, community and workplace settings.

Our feasibility study of 500 people delivered by physiotherapists in GP settings. Evaluation (link to Andrew’s paper) showed improvements in clinical outcomes. A Social Return on Investment evaluation (link to SROI report) found a return of up to £4.00 for every £1.00 invested.
