"My appointments at Musculoskeletal (MSK) Service Dewsbury Health Centre"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC / Locala MSK muscles, joints & bones

(as the patient),

After being referred by my Doctor an appointment with a member of the MSK team came through very quickly. I saw MSK practitioner Chris Creaghan and would like to say that he was very helpful, explained everything thoroughly, referred me for an xray and set my next appointment to discuss the results of the xray. Given the ultra sound results, Chris was excellent at explaining what I needed to think about and do to manage the pain.

At my follow up appointment, we discussed the results and agreed a way forward and also set my next appointment.

With all the negative comments that one hears about the NHS, I would just like to say I received a first class service.
