The Centre for Musculoskeletal Medicine aims to provide a single point of quick access for musculoskeletal patients requiring assessment and management of musculoskeletal problems.
By blending the comprehensive and varied skill mix of Musculoskeletal Physicians, Sports and Exercise Medicine Consultants and Extended Scope Practitioners we offer a comprehensive, holistic, specialist - led Multidisciplinary service.
Our clinicians use the highest level of evidence based management, utilising a variety of approaches encompassing both medical and biopsychosocial models. We work in tandem with our Orthopaedic Surgeon colleagues, often in combined clinics, to deliver a truly cohesive package of care.
