Our CATS and SATS service is aimed at people who have persistent pain due to a musculoskeletal problem such as osteoarthritis or joint pain, or for people with spinal symptoms such as back pain or sciatic pain (leg pain due to a trapped nerve).
Your GP will refer you to this service if you have not responded to normal GP care such as pain relief and physiotherapy.
We will talk to you about your joint, muscle or spinal pain and will thoroughly assess your condition. Once we have the results, we will discuss and agree any treatment and exercise plans with you.
We have clinics in Yate Westgate Centre, Cossham Memorial Hospital, and Thornbury Hospital outpatients.
You need to be referred by your GP to access this service.
You can now contact our Clinical and Spinal Assessment Treatment Services, via email, to let us know what your preferred location and day of the week is for your next appointment. You can also tell us whether morning or afternoons are preferable, then leave the rest to us. We will then contact you to confirm your next appointment details.
Please note that not all our clinics are held at these locations. If we are not able to accommodate your choice, we will contact you with alternative options.
