Welcome to Surrey iMSK

Surrey iMSK is an NHS service provided by Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

We have been commissioned by North West Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group to provide a comprehensive musculoskeletal service to the local population in North West Surrey and beyond.

What are musculoskeletal services?

The musculoskeletal or ‘locomotor’ system gives people the ability to move.

Musculoskeletal disorders are injuries or pain in the body’s joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons and structures that support the limbs, neck and back.

There are more than 200 musculoskeletal conditions including arthritis, back pain and osteoporosis. These conditions are not life threatening but can have a tremendous influence on people's quality of life.

View our range of self-management advice and treatments (under supervision from your clinician).

Where does it hurt?

Musculoskeletal pain can occur in many parts of your body.  For help on your condition, please click on your pain location on the body map or choose from the options below:

Each section is divided into the following areas:

  • What do I do if I have pain?
  • How can I help myself?
  • When should I seek medical attention?
  • What treatments are available?
  • How do I get help?

Some areas also include simple exercises that you can do under supervision of your clinician.

We have also included copies of our patient literature and links to useful websites such as NHS Choices.

If you think you have a fracture or broken bone please do not come to the iMSK service, as these types of injuries need to be looked at urgently. Please either contact your GP, go to your local walk-in-centre or go straight to your nearest A&E. Further details are available here.
