Our Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (CATS) is designed for people for whom physiotherapy is not appropriate. This could be for a number of reasons; it could be that their physiotherapy treatment has not been successful, or that their diagnosis is unclear and they need further, more specialist intervention. The CATS service can also order diagnostic tests, such as MRI scans or X-rays if appropriate.
Following a clinical triage process, we are able to offer appointments with an Orthopaedic Consultant for a surgical opinion on elective operations for people with hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist or hand conditions.
