Welcome to the Physiotherapy Webpage for the Sussex Musculoskeletal Partnership

We provide NHS rehabilitation services in Brighton, Mid Sussex, Crawley, Horsham and East Grinstead.

Our team comprises of physiotherapists and support administrative staff with osteopaths and physiotherapy assistants available on some sites.

Musculoskeletal physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future.

It takes a holistic approach that involves you as the patient directly in your own care.

You will be offered the most appropriate appointment for your condition and circumstances which may be a one to one appointment, a class or group, or you may be assessed and managed over the telephone.Treatments may include exercise, advice, education, manual therapy and hydrotherapy.

We have strong links with our community partners to support on-going exercise activity, wellbeing and health promotion such as weight loss and smoking cessation.

We believe at the core of our service that you as the patient are involved in your own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in your own management with support from health care professionals.

How to access physiotherapy self-referral

To access most of our physiotherapy departments at present you need to be referred through your GP. The exceptions to this are if you are registered with an East Grinstead GP, if you live in Mid Sussex and belong to the Newtons or Brow surgeries or if you live in Horsham and belong to the Park, Courtyard and Riverside Surgeries. If you belong to these surgeries you can self-refer yourself to physiotherapy through an online form or by picking up a paper referral form from your GP practice or physiotherapy department.
