First Contact Physiotherapy

The Practice is offering a new service to patients.

If you have a problem that affects your neck, back, bones, joints or muscles and you are not unwell you can now consult with a specialist Physiotherapist instead of a GP.

This gives you faster access to expert diagnosis and you'll leave with the advise and exercises you need to start tackling the problem.

The Physio can also refer you on to hospital services where necessary, order tests and write prescriptions.

Nationally, just 5% of patients choose to see a GP afterwards and 96% would recommend the service to family or friends.

Speak to a Receptionist to book your appointment.

* Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Physio consultations are managed over the telephone*
