Musculoskeletal assessment service (MCATTS)

The musculoskeletal assessment triage and treatment service (MCATTS) provides expert assessment of your musculoskeletal condition with specialist physiotherapists.

We assess bone and joint conditions and can refer you for treatment and management.

Our team includes specialists in:

  • spinal conditions
  • knee joints
  • wrists and hand problems
  • sports injuries
  • shoulder and elbow joints
  • hip joints
  • foot and ankle conditions
  • injection therapy with ultrasound guidance

You might need to have some diagnostic tests, such as blood tests and scans. We may refer you to another service if you need it.

We aim to see you within 10 working days of receiving your referral.

Research and clinical trials

Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
