How to refer a patient

We accept referrals from GPs within Lambeth and Southwark.

For Lambeth GPs referring to MSK please use NHS e-Referral Service

To refer to physiotherapy use our referral form (Word 40Kb) or use NHS e-Referral Service.

Musculoskeletal assessment and treatment service

The musculoskeletal assessment and treatment service (MCATTS) provides a second opinion for musculoskeletal conditions that would otherwise be referred to orthopaedics or rheumatology. Patients are assessed by a clinical specialist with an extended scope of practice, diagnostics are ordered as required and onward referral to consultant clinics are made where appropriate.

To refer to musculoskeletal assessment and treatment see the musculoskeletal referral page.

Reasonable adjustments for patients

We are committed to providing reasonable adjustments for all of our patients so that they have a positive experience using our services. The details of the adjustments we provide are listed on our e-referral service description.

If you think that your patient could benefit from or might require any of the below adjustments, please can you specify clearly what is needed on the patient’s referral.

  • Longer appointments (eg double appointment).
  • Timing of appointment (beginning or end of day).
  • Environment of appointment eg is there a quiet room available rather than the busy department?
  • Carers to come with patient to appointment.
