Welcome to the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Musculoskeletal out-patient physiotherapy service. The Musculoskeletal physiotherapy service (or MSK for short) is based in health centres and out-patient departments across Greater Glasgow and Clyde. To find your nearest MSK physiotherapy department view our Interactive Map.
An MSK physiotherapist will asses and treat patients who have any injury, disease or problem that relates to muscles, bones, joints and peripheral nerves. They may also provide advice to help you manage your condition or refer you to other services.
There are several ways you can access MSK physiotherapy. You can ask your G.P. (alt Doctor) to refer you, you may be referred through another NHS service or you can refer yourself directly. We need some information to help us provide the right service for you so in order to refer yourself to MSK physiotherapy please complete our Self Referral Form and take it to your Local Physiotherapy Department. Paper copies are also available from your local physiotherapy department or GP surgery.
The What Happens Next leaflet explains what will happen once we receive your referral.
