Physiotherapy

The NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde Musculoskeletal Out-patient Physiotherapy Service (or MSK for short) is based in health centres and out-patient departments across Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

MSK physiotherapists will assess and treat patients over the age of 14 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.

Access to MSK physiotherapy - GPs can refer you or you can refer yourself (ask at your local health centre / physiotherapy department for a self referral form or go to: www.nhsggc.org.uk/your-health/health-services/msk-physiotherapy/ and print off a form).

If you require a home visit (for housebound patients only) from a physiotherapist, please ask your GP to refer you to the local Glasgow City HSCP Rehabilitation service.
