We now have an experienced physio working in the practice who is the first point of contact for all musculoskeletal problems.
They are actually more expert than the GPs in assessing these problems, and have been employed to specifically provide easy access into the specialist musculoskeletal service. They can assess patients, request XRays, provide treatment plans and do specialist referrals to consultants in Rheumatology, Orthopaedics and other clinics when needed, including when scans are needed.
This speeds up access to specialist services, and frees up GP and nurse appointments for other problems requiring their expertise.
To book an appointment, please speak to reception and ask for the First Contact Physio. Our reception staff may also signpost you to these appointments when this is the most appropriate way of dealing with your musculoskeletal problems.
