Practice Plus Group MSK, Buckinghamshire

How to get referred

To be able to receive a clinical assessment or treatment here at Practice Plus Group MSK, Buckinghamshire, you will need to be registered with a Buckinghamshire GP and be referred by your GP, consultant or other health care professional looking after you.

We will then contact you to make your first appointment which may take place at any one of our eight locations depending on the type of treatment you require and the one that is most convenient to you. We’ll then send you a confirmation letter plus any other information relevant to your appointment.

A couple of days before your appointment we’ll also send you a text, to double check that you’re still able to come. If you know before this that you won’t be able to make it to your appointment please contact the centre to let us know as soon as you can, giving us at least 24 hours notice. We’ll do our best to reschedule your appointment for the date and time that suits you.

On the day of your appointment please give yourself plenty of time to find us. We aim to run appointments on time, so if you’re late you may not be seen. If you are running late, please let us know and we’ll do our best to still see you. When you arrive, please either check in at reception or at our sites that do not have a reception please take a seat and the clinician seeing you will call you through at your appointment time.

You will be seen by a healthcare professional who will spend time assessing you. They may then give you some same day treatment and agree a suitable management treatment plan with you.
