Musculoskeletal out-patient Physiotherapy

The NHS Grampian Musculoskeletal out-patient Physiotherapy service is now accepting patient self-referrals. The service will continue to use telephone or video consultation as a first appointment, for the majority of referrals, for the foreseeable future. It is important for patients to understand that even though things are opening up, face to face appointments will be organised based on clinical need.

Musculoskeletal (MSK) Helpline

The helpline is operated by the Musculoskeletal Advice and Triage Service (MATS) and is provided by fully trained call operators, nurses and physiotherapists. This service can help by: finding out if you need to see a doctor, providing key information and advice to help with your problem, referring you to a physiotherapist or podiatrist if you need it.

NHS 24 MSK Help app

The NHS 24 MSK Help app was developed with the help of Scottish patients, doctors, MSK therapists, pharmacists and employment services. The information contained in this app is linked to muscle, bone and joint self-management information on NHS inform.
