Musculoskeletal Service (MSK) – Physiotherapy
When you call the MSK service a member of the team will take your details and make an appointment for you for a telephone review with an advanced physiotherapy practitioner. The advanced practitioner will then call you back at convenient time for you, assess you over the phone and offer advice. All you have to do to access this service is to phone Monday to Friday between 09:00 and 11:30.
