We are now running a service which offers the opportunity to receive same day specialist advice from a physiotherapist about your sore muscles, joints, or spine, rather than needing to see a GP first. Our reception team may ask you if you are interested in being referred into this service if they think you are eligible.
You may be able to use this service if you have developed a problem with your muscles, joints or spine in the last six weeks (this may be flare-up of an existing condition, or a completely new condition), and haven’t already seen anyone about this. If the physiotherapist feels that you need further assessment, they may invite you for a follow-up face to face appointment within five days.
We hope this service will benefit our patients by making sure each patient consults with the most appropriate clinician, and by reducing the waiting time for GP appointments’.
