A Spotlight on MSK, Diagnostics, Therapies and Trauma

 

 

 

 

 

Hello I’m Cathy Parsons, Clinical Director of Surrey iMSK, Diagnostics, Therapies and Trauma. I am delighted that you are interested in joining our team.

We are in the vanguard of Sustainability and Transformation developments in North West Surrey as we provide a comprehensive service to patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Surrey iMSK is an NHS service provided by Ashford and St. Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We have been commissioned by North West Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group to provide a comprehensive musculoskeletal service to the local population in North West Surrey.

You can find out more on our public website

We have called our service an ‘integrated service’ to reflect the way individual services need to work together to make sure that our patients receive all the care they need, in a joined up way, without having to take themselves from service to service.

This is a new service (from 1 October 2016), and reflects lots of engagement with local patients who told us they wanted to see shorter waiting times, more joined up care and more involvement in their treatment decisions.

You will find lots of information on our website / or information for GP’s about the services we offer, our teams of highly trained professional staff as well as lots of information on self-care and exercises you can try at home (following advice from your clinician).

Our service includes a comprehensive range of complimentary disciplines including orthopaedics, podiatry, orthotics, rheumatologists, chronic pain services, occupational therapy and musculoskeletal physiotherapy. These services are delivered by a wide range of professionals, all working together in our integrated service. these include: orthopaedic surgeons, extended scope practitioners, physiotherapists, other manual therapists, rheumatologists, pain management specialists, podiatrists and psychologists.

We are in the process of recruiting for this vacancy: Associate Director of Therapies
