Welcome to Lincs MSK CATS


Due to the current situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) please note all face to face appointments will now be replaced with either a telephone or video consultation.

You will be called by one of our clinical team.

We are currently not providing steroid injections due to the increased risk of infection.


Following Government advice, we will not be holding any face-to-face appointments. If you would like to book a telephone appointment our office is open between 9am and 2.30pm. If you are calling outside of these times please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

To help ensure we remain a COVID–19 free location – and in line with the latest government advice – patients are required to wear their own non-medical face coverings when visiting our Centre. This can be a mask, scarf or any other fabric face covering that covers your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.

Thank you for patience at this time
