Welcome to the Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Musculoskeletal Outpatients Physiotherapy Service.
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone
is affected by illness, injury or disability. Physiotherapy is a
science-based profession which takes a whole person approach to
health and wellbeing.
Our highly trained team of clinicians treat a wide variety of
musculoskeletal conditions by combining current evidenced based
treatments with clinical experience. We work closely with our
Consultant colleagues in Orthopaedics, Rheumatology, Plastic
Surgery and Pain Management to provide the best possible care for
our service users. Our aim is to put you first.
GPs can refer to physiotherapy via the 'Physio Direct' Telephone service or
through the electronic referral system. We also accept
internal referrals from other departments e.g. Orthopaedics.
All electronic and internal referrals are then triaged through the
MSK Clinical Assessment and Triage Service (CATS) and directed to
the appropriate services.
