The Bristol Bones and Joints Health Integration Team (HIT) hosted by Bristol Health Partners is delighted to welcome two new co-directors to its leadership team.
Dr Andrew Moore is a University of Bristol Research Fellow specialising in musculoskeletal health and orthopaedic outcomes. Louise Thorne is the HIT’s new patient co-director.
They join current co-directors Dr Emma Dures, Associate Professor in Rheumatology and Self-Management at University of the West of England (UWE) Bristol and Sanchit Mehendale, Trauma and Orthopaedic Consultant at North Bristol NHS Trust.
The Bristol Bones and Joints HIT aims to bring together patients and professionals to share knowledge and experience of musculoskeletal conditions and to make sure patients get the best support possible.
"I'm looking forward to working with a really positive team who are focussed on improving patient support and outcomes, and increasing the impact of the great musculoskeletal research that's happening across the South West."
