Physiotherapists now available for first consultations at the GP practice.
Around one in five people book to see their GP when they experience bone, joint or muscle problems, when they could actually be safely and effectively seen by a physiotherapist at the first point of contact.
First Contact Physiotherapists have expertise in the assessment and management of bone, joint and muscle problems. They assess patients, diagnose their condition, give advice on how best to manage the problem and if needed refer for investigations or to other specialist services.
If you have bone, joint and muscle problems, please contact your GP practice and ask for an appointment with one of our First Contact Physiotherapists. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic currently the service is open for telephone and video assessments with the option for face to face assessments if needed at Alfred Squire Road Health Centre, Coalway Road Surgery, Penn Manor Medical Centre and West Park Surgery.
