Following the NICE Guidelines for Low back pain and sciatica in over 16s (NG59) we reviewed our pathway to ensure compliance with both NG59 and the NICE Quality Standard (QS155) in collaboration with our community partner Central and North West London (CNWL) NHS Foundation Trust.
The aim was to implement the recommendations and ensure our service used current evidence and validated outcome measures. Using a group setting allowed us to see patients quicker, triage effectively and promote optimal management. Audit data has shown a decrease in waiting times and high patient satisfaction.
