New number for service

The freephone number for the Musculoskeletal Advice and Triage Service (MATS) will change from Monday, August 18, to 0845 604 0001.

The freephone service was launched in November for Tayside patients living with problems with their muscles, joints and bones to access immediate advice and quicker referral to physiotherapy or hospital. Calls to the old number will automatically be transferred. New posters and business cards are being delivered to GP surgeries across Tayside in preparation for the switch.
