Musculoskeletal Triage Service (East & North Hertfordshire)

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 Musculoskeletal (MSK) Triage Service is a specialist assessment service for patients with conditions that affect the bones, joints and muscles - collectively known as musculoskeletal conditions.

The purpose of the MSK Triage Service is to assess and diagnose complex musculoskeletal conditions and signpost patients to the most appropriate treatment, as quickly as possible.
