The team at Howden have been recommending to our patients the Musculoskeletal Assessment and Triage Service (MATS) which has been up and running over the past 2-3 years in Lothian.

It is not simply a self referral service for physiotherapy, but offers access to assessment and advice for many musculoskeletal problems, and may save you having to go through other services for some of the more common health issues of this type.

Have a look at the NHS Inform website link for more information.
