Bones, Joints & Muscle Problems
When your GP refers you for physiotherapy or musculoskeletal problems, you will be initially assessed by an organisation called Healthcare. This is a clinical stakeholder organisation which works within the NHS and is solely funded through NHS contracts; it does not carry out any private physiotherapy work and its services are free to patients in the same way as other NHS services. They were selected by the OCCG to provide a service where people with musculoskeletal conditions could access high quality, effective and timely advice, assessment, diagnosis, treatment and triage at the right place first time.
Healthshare are offering their services from a number of locations around the county. They have tried as far as possible to keep the staff in the similar locations to allow patients to receive continuity of care.
