Hip & Knee Services - Outpatients

  • Rapid access physiotherapy and nurse led clinic specifically for patients with osteoarthritis (degeneration of the hip and knee joints).
  • Identifies patients who require surgical opinion and those who can be managed safely without surgery.
  • Runs alongside orthopaedic surgeon clinics so there is access to a surgeon if required.
  • Facilitates non-surgical management of patients in consultation with the patient, the general practitioner and range of community based public/private services.
  • Utilises objective monitoring tools such as the Multi Attribute Prioritisation Tool (MAPT) to regularly monitor patients without the patient necessarily having to attend outpatient appointments.
