Orthopaedics

Musculoskeletal (MSK) Service

Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions affect muscles, joints and bones. Our MSK orthopaedics service aims to put you back in control of your own healthcare so you can do the things that matter to you.

What can we help you with?

Examples of conditions we can help you with include:

  • Arthritis and similar inflammatory conditions
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis and fragility fractures
  • Back pain and other types of persistent pain

Treatment covers a number of areas, from self-care help to prescriptions/injection and referral to hospital for operations. We aim to put together a care plan that works for you and will work together with you to do this.

How to access the service

You will need to be referred by your GP to this service. They will contact us and a member of our team will contact you to arrange your appointment.
