Professor Kay said, “I’m honoured to be the first National Clinical Director for musculoskeletal conditions appointed by NHS England. Whilst I am excited to have taken on this appointment, which builds on my past experience, I do not underestimate the responsibility I have taken on particularly to patients as well as the wider musculoskeletal community.  I’m also very grateful and reassured to have received numerous letters of support for this new appointment. I can categorical state that I will do all I can in this role to achieve better clinical outcomes that improve the quality of life for patients who suffer from musculoskeletal conditions.”
