Salus Medical Services Ltd. has a management role in this service, under a contract between North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG and Healthshare, Premier Health and Surrey Physio.

30% of GP consultations are about musculoskeletal problems*. Pilots have shown the benefits of enabling self-referral to advanced physiotherapist for assessment.

This service supports patients across the CCG area; for every five thousand patients, the service provides fifteen advanced musculoskeletal (MSK) physiotherapy support appointments each week.

Patients can self-refer – a GP appointment is not needed.

Why not send someone who can use the service a link to this video?
