What is power of attorney?


MSK Ayrshire and Arran have recently launched a new website to assist with the advice and management of musculoskeletal conditions. At present it contains information and exercises for OA knees, patellofemoral pain and chronic pain management. Although only recently launched early feedback shows an appetite for further information so over the next few months the website will be continually updated with other common MSK conditions.


Test Results

test_results6You are welcome to call after 11:00 to enquire about your test results as our staff will have more time to help you at this time.

You will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results at the time of your test so please bear this in mind before calling. It is then your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor. 

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior written permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
