  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Joints
  • Nerves

Get access to this service

Contact your GP or health professional about accessing this service. They will be able to talk through your options and make a referral to our service if it’s right for you.

Once you've been referred for an assessment, please wait 72 hours before contacting the booking office, so we can make sure your referral has been received and logged.

The booking office is open Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. 

How we can help

We aim to offer a timely appointment in which our clinicians can quickly diagnose whether your health problem requires further investigation.

This means that you will be seen quicker, and get the treatment or care plan you need sooner.

At your first appointment, you’ll spend around 30-45 minutes (depending on your condition) with a clinician from our team who will examine your problem. We can discuss what treatment options will be available for you and how you can manage your symptoms.

Depending on your condition, you may need to see a:

  • Physiotherapist
  • Occupational therapist
  • Podiatrist
  • General Practitioner with a special interest in orthopaedics
  • Orthopaedic Physician

It is advisable to wear loose or easily removable clothing to your appointment as you may be asked to undress during the examination.

We can organise a referral to the most appropriate and convenient service to meet your needs.  We have a number of sites across Hampshire and you can choose where you would like to be seen.
