Integrated Care & Assessment Treatment Service (ICATS)

What does the service provide?

This team provides assessment and treatment planning for patients with musculoskeletal (bone and joint) problems. They use a range of assessment tools such as X-rays and scans and work between your GP and hospital consultant to ensure that you receive the correct treatment.

Our team

Our team consists of extended scope physiotherapy practitioners, and GP's with special interests.

How to refer

Your GP can refer you through MSK SPA. An initial consultation will normally last between 20 - 45 minutes. It will involve a comprehensive review of your symptoms, limitations to activity and the results of many treatments previously undertaken. Your general health both past and present and any medication you are presently taking will also be reviewed.
