Once referral has been received, it will be triaged and directed to the most appropriate service in Camden MSK (please see Downloads for a guide).
Urgent rheumatology referrals
For urgent rheumatology referrals, tick the ‘urgent’ box on the referral form. Complete form with as much referral information as possible. Urgent referrals are sent directly to Rheumatology on day of receipt and followed up with a confirmation of receipt by the Camden MSK admin team.
Please note that all patients referred to spinal neurosurgery will be managed by Camden MSKs Single Point of Referral for triage.
Self-referral into Physiotherapy
Self-referral by telephone is the quickest way to access the service. Please provide patient leaflet (see Downloads).
