Physiotherapists - 01577 866402
There are two Chartered and State Registered Physiotherapists attached to the Health Centre offering treatment in musculoskeletal problems. They offer a First Contact Physiotherapy Service. This service offers patients aged 16 or over the opportunity to book an assessment with a specialist physiotherapist instead of seeing their GP. If you have pain or movement issues associated with a muscle, back or joint problem then seeing the First Contact Physiotherapist could be right for you. Problems causing pain which have arisen because of an injury within the last 48 hours particularly where there is also a wound which requires treatment will still be dealt with by our practice nurses. Please ask our Receptionists about this service and discuss if the First Contact Physiotherapy Service is right for you.
