Service changes for COVID19
Most healthcare outside of hospital is now being delivered virtually to help tackle the spread of the Coronavirus.
This means many appointments will take place over the telephone or on the internet, and patients will also be asked to take practical steps at home to manage their condition.

Who is it for?
The service is for adults, and children over the age of 10 with musculoskeletal conditions.
Can anyone use this service?

Monday to Friday
What to expect
Treatment may be offered on an individual or group basis.
You will initially be assessed by a member of the physiotherapy team who will carry out a detailed assessment of the joint/condition in question.
The assessment may include looking at the movement and strength as well as carrying out some specific tests to find out what the problem is.
Following your assessment, together you will decide the most appropriate treatment option for your condition.
You will be offered a follow up appointment (if deemed necessary) along with a treatment programme to continue with at home.
