MSK Self-Referrals

If you are aged 16 and over, you can refer yourself to the MSK Partnership for any musculoskeletal problems involving bones, muscles, nerves, or joints.

This includes:

  • Spine (including neck)
  • Shoulder
  • Elbow
  • Wrist/hand
  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Foot/ankle
  • Pelvic/bladder floor
  • Widespread pain

MSK advise that you wait 6 weeks before referring yourself to them. This is because 86% of people get better within 6 weeks.

You will need your NHS number when you refer yourself. You can find this in the NHS App or on any hospital letter you have received.
