Bedfordshire MSK Services provides a streamlined triage and treatment service for patients with musculoskeletal symptoms. Combining the expertise of multiple clinicians ensures that the patient receives the right treatment.
We endeavour to deliver high quality patient services with short waiting times, with appointments available in the evening or at the weekend as well as during the working week. We are innovative in our approach by empowering clinicians to lead the services they provide.
Once we have received the referral your case will be assessed by the multidisciplinary team and you will then be sent an appointment in the post for the Bedfordshire MSK Services. Alternatively, if it is felt more appropriate to refer you to another specialist outside of the Bedfordshire MSK Services, then your referral will be directed on for appropriate treatment.
The MSK Hub should receive referrals for ALL MSK problems (other than the exclusions detailed below). This includes Community Therapies (physio, hand therapy, podiatry) Community MSK (ESPs/GPwSI's) Consultant Led Care (Orthopaedics, Rheumatology, Neurosurgery, MSK Plastics, Podiatric Surgery, Pain Services)
