Musculoskeletal (MSK) Physiotherapy
Currently due to COVID-19 MSK Physiotherapy Services still have staff deployed to other sites and there is only a small cohort of MSK staff available.
For the safety of patients and staff, MSK Physiotherapy is being delivered by telephone appointments for assessment and advice. Near Me video consulting (link below) is also being used for video appointments with patients.
For urgent patients that need to be seen face to face, experienced MSK clinical staff are working alongside the Orthopaedic consultants, Advanced Practice Physiotherapists in the orthopaedic clinics of University Hospital Crosshouse and University Hospital Ayr.
MSK Physiotherapy services are still receiving referrals in the normal way but are only able to deal with acute conditions and patients with chronic conditions will sit on the routine waiting list. Please note that the MATS help line for patients to self-refer is still closed.
I hope that this explains the situation as patient and staff safety is paramount but we are now delivering a different service for urgent patients only. Your help when referring to MSK Physiotherapy is appreciated and sign posting patients to the web page with lots of self-management advice is appreciated.
