Vita Health Group has acquired musculoskeletal (MSK) service provider Pennine MSK Partnership.

Founded in March 2006, and with a team of 90 clinical staff, Pennine MSK Partnership specialises in orthopaedics, rheumatology and persistent pain in community settings across several sites in and around Oldham, Greater Manchester.

The acquisition will increase the number of Vita Health Group’s care providers to more than 200 MSK clinicians, helping patients suffering with bone, joint and muscle issues across six NHS regions.

Vita Health Group’s chief executive Derrick Farrell said: “We have long admired [Pennine MSK Partnership’s] high-quality operating model and patient outcomes and look forward to further developing this exceptional service over the coming months. The acquisition will allow Vita Health Group to build on its growing portfolio of NHS MSK contracts, which already include areas such as Bromley, Lambeth and Wandsworth.

Ruth Holden, director of HR and operations at Pennine MSK Partnership commented: “We are looking forward to working with Vita Health Group. The support and infrastructure that Vita brings will ensure that the NHS service we provide to the patients of Oldham continues to deliver high quality outcomes.”
