Specialist Spinal Triage Practitioners (Triage and Treat)

About us

We are a team of specialist spinal triage practitioners who work as part of the North of England Regional Back Pain Programme. We are a team of highly trained specialist physiotherapists and nurses with back pain expertise.

If you are referred to our service, a detailed consultation and careful examination will be done, and we will help you decide on the best course of action and organise any treatments or help required. We will oversee your care throughout the pathway and become your personal guide to help you manage your problem.

We are based at The James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough and the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton.

We also run satellite clinics at Whitby General Hospital, East Cleveland Hospital, Redcar Hospital and Resolution Health Centre in North Ormesby.
