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.

For more information, and to start your self-referral, please visit the MSK website
