Locomotor COVID 19 Update
Due to COVID 19 we are currently not seeing patients face to face, patients will instead be contacted by phone. If you have received an appointment letter, please do not attend the department as you will not be seen.
Many of our staff have been redeployed to treat COVID 19 patients, so it may take longer than usual for you to receive a phone appointment from us than normal.
During this time we are only able to request urgent X-rays and MRI’s and we are no longer able to provide steroid injections as NHS COVID 19 guidance.
We continue to accept urgent referrals from GP’s. The physiotherapy service will continue to offer a telephone/video triage system for those patients who meet ‘urgent’ criteria as set down by NHS England. Only patients who have been assessed over the phone by a member of staff as being urgent and requiring face to face appointments will be invited to attend the department.
Patients whose referrals are routine will be contacted by phone by a clinician in due course.
If you need to contact the department please call 020 7683 4676 or Email:firstname.lastname@example.org
