How To Refer

How to refer

Please complete the appropriate referral form with full, accurate information and provide any relevant investigation reports.
 
Referrals are triaged by a senior clinician to ensure patients are seen by the most appropriate service. A referral can be triaged into MSK physiotherapy, MSK CATS, MSK podiatry or secondary care (e.g. orthopaedics, rheumatology or chronic pain consultants).
 
In MSK Physiotherapy you might be directed to one of the following appointment types:
 
  • Our back pain education session – in this appointment you attend a specialised group session followed by your physiotherapy assessment – these sessions can take up to 2 hours
  • Our lower limb osteoarthritis education sessions – in this appointment you attend a specialised group session followed by your physiotherapy assessment – these sessions can take up to 2 hours
  • Our specialised ‘persistent pain’ appointments – these appointments may start with a group education session
  • A standard 1:1 Physiotherapy Assessment
  • Our Turkish speaking education session

You may then complete your treatment in one of our many exercise classes based across Haringey and Islington.
