Hand Therapy Service

About the Service

Notice regarding the service during COVID-19:

During the Coronavirus outbreak all MSK Services are still fully functioning.

We are accepting all referrals and processing as usual and referrals received are triaged within 24/48 hours. Where possible remote support is being offered via telephone or video consultation and this means that many of our initial contacts will be via either telephone or video. In line with national guidance face to face appointments will be arranged for those patients who have been assessed as needing to be seen in person. All patients attending face to face will be COVID-19 screened and asked to attend on their own where possible. If you have any concerns about attending you face to face appointment please contact us on the number on the top of your appointment letter. For further information please see "Arrangements for attending your appointment" and "More information about appointments during COVID".


The outpatient Hand Therapy Service is delivered by occupational therapists and physiotherapists and available to patients in east and north Hertfordshire.

The aim of this service is to help you resume activity and maintain independence in your daily life at work, home and during leisure. Furthermore, we aim to give you a greater understanding of your condition and to enable you to self-manage your symptoms through professional advice and guidance.

The service provides assessment and treatment for a variety of conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, lupus (SLE) and post-operative care following hand surgery.
