Additional Services

Muscle & Joint Pain

East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership has set up an MSK support line to help people with muscle and joint pain. The impact of COVID-19 may mean that some people may not be getting the help they need, This could be because they are self-isolating, shielding or working from home. Or they may be hesitant about getting in touch with their practice because they view themselves as non-urgent.
