Musculoskeletal Adult Service Greenwich

Musculoskeletal is an overall term for conditions affecting your muscles, joints and sometimes nerves. The Musculoskeletal Adult Service aims to prevent the need for hospital treatment by providing experts in the community who can assess and treat your condition or direct you to the right service first time with all the necessary tests completed prior to you being seen.

Benefits of the Adult  Musculoskeletal Service

  • Faster access to assessment, tests and treatment
  • Treatment by the correct specialist
  • Access to expert clinicians in the community to assess, treat and advise you regarding your musculoskeletal health
  • Shorter waiting times compared to hospital treatment
  • Specialist diagnostic and treatment techniques including sonography, injection therapy, extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), specialist gait analysis, acupuncture and pain management.


How do I access the service?

If you are experiencing joint or muscular pains, please visit your GP. If they feel that you would benefit from a specialist assessment, they will complete a referral on your behalf.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.
