Lincolnshire Musculoskeletal Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (LCATS)

Welcome to Lincs MSK CATS


We are now providing face to face appointments at Louth, Boston, Old Leake and Wragby for both spinal and MSK patients. We hope to increase the locations but must ensure the safety of all using these sites. When your appointment is booked you will be asked to follow some basic safety instructions and further information is provided with your appointment letter.

We are now able to offer steroid injections but with additional risk assessments in place. Patients on the waiting list are being contacted by a clinician to discuss these.

We continue to offer telephone and video consultations for patients who are shielding and for those who prefer to not travel to clinic at this time.

We appreciate your continued understanding as we adapt to the new ways of working.


Lincs MSK CATS provides fast, convenient access to high quality NHS musculoskeletal assessments and treatment, supported by appropriate diagnostic tests for patients in the Lincolnshire area.

A musculoskeletal condition is any condition affecting the joints, muscles, ligaments or other soft tissue that causes pain and disability. Our service is designed to provide you with a clinical assessment and care plan plus some immediate treatment where needed.

Lincs MSK CATS operates from six convenient locations across the county all within existing health centres and hospitals, offering you the best possible care closer to home.

We know that coming for medical appointments can sometimes be daunting so please don’t hesitate to give us a call us if you have any questions or worries before your appointment. Our staff will be happy to discuss any concern you may have.

Did you know, 100% of patients would recommend our service to their friends and family? Find out more about our services.
