Greenwich GPs learnt more about Oxleas’ Community Gynaecology Service and Musculoskeletal Service at an event organised by Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group this week.

Local GPs discussed with our Consultant in Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare, Dr Jane Dickson, how we are offering local women a wide range of gynaecological services in community clinics – many which women in the past would have had to have gone to hospital for. Women can be referred to the service by their GP for gynaecological conditions that do not require surgery. For more information see our Community Gynaecology Service.

For informal information and advice about women’s health problems, you can also tweet Dr Dickson on Twitter @TheGynaeDoctor.

GPs also learnt more about the musculoskeletal services on offer to Greenwich residents. Musculoskeletal physiotherapist Holly Laws described how the Adults Musculoskeletal (MSK) Team aims to provide a one stop shop for patients suffering from pain, mobility dysfunction or impairment within the community.

The team is made up of physiotherapists and podiatrists working together to offer high quality care using highly specialist assessment and treatment techniques previously only available in secondary care. . 

Referrals to both these services can be made through the Greenwich Referral Management Service (RMBS).
