Patients who have musculoskeletal or ‘MSK’ conditions

Patients who have musculoskeletal or ‘MSK’ conditions (related to muscles, bones and joints) will go through a triage process, ‘a single point of access’ with Circle.

Patients will then be directed to a treatment option, which could be a face to face assessment with Circle or treatment with a local provider. This treatment could be physiotherapy, surgery, pain management and other options.

You can either be referred by your GP, or you can use self refer form that can be downloaded from the right hand side of this page. 

You can now self-refer to our PhysioLine telephone service for muscle and joint problems if you meet the following criteria:

• You are aged 18 or over.

• You have had your condition for less than sixmonths.

• Your GP is in the Bedfordshire CCG (if you are not sure please contact your GP surgery or visit their website).

• Your complaint is regarding a single (1) joint/area.
