COVID-19

In response to the government measures to protect the general public from COVID-19 and as part of the NHS Strategy to free up services to care for people affected by the virus, Dorset Musculoskeletal Service face to face clinics will be cancelled for the foreseeable future.

You will be contacted by a team member to discuss your future appointment options in due course. These are likely to be telephone or video consultations (if you have internet access and adequate broadband speed).
