Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy - Self Management App

A highly innovative app has been developed between UHL and LPT Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Services. Its purpose is to support patients by providing clear, accessible information about common MSK conditions, advice on how to manage an injury, along with exercise videos and links to useful websites to help with self-management. It also provides information on how to self-refer into LLR MSK Physiotherapy and Podiatry services.


The app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Search for Musculoskeletal Self Care

Protect your loved ones with the official NHS COVID-19 contact tracing app for England and Wales.

How and when should I pause contact tracing?

- You can pause contact tracing within the app by moving the contact tracing toggle on the home screen.

- If you’re a health or care worker practising infection prevention and control (IPC), including wearing correct PPE, you should pause contact tracing on your app.

- You should also pause the app when:
 - you’re working behind a fixed Perspex (or equivalent) screen and are fully protected from other people - you should be adequately protected
 - you store your phone in a locker or communal area
