Physiotherapist – First Contact

We now have a specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist running weekly clinics at several of our surgeries. He is an experienced practitioner who can assess, diagnose and manage patient conditions.

Conditions include:

  • Neck & shoulder pains
  • Acute bad backs
  • Acute knee injuries
  • Ankle and foot pains
  • Tennis elbow and Golfer’s elbow
  • Sports injury assessments

You can ring your registered surgery and directly book an appointment – you do NOT need to see/discuss your condition with a GP or Nurse beforehand.

This is a first contact assessment and advice service, meaning that you will be seen and then either sign posted to self-help or given the appropriate onward investigation or referral if needed – ongoing physiotherapy treatment will not be offered as part of this service.

When attending an appointment we suggest that you wear suitable loose-fitting clothes—such as T shirt, jogging bottoms or shorts that you feel comfortable being assessed in.
