THINK PHYSIO - SAVE GP'S TIME
We now have a physiotherapist, Laura Newton, working at the practice who could see you instead of the doctor. There are also physiotherapists available at other local practices who we are able to book you in with. The physiotherapists can assess various joint and muscle pains and give you a diagnosis and some advice.
The physiotherapists can deal with joint aches and pains such as whiplash, stiff painful necks and backs, elbow or shoulder pain, knee or hip pain, arthritis and sports injuries.
They will be able to examine you and give an explanation as to what the problem is and how best to treat it. They can liaise with the doctor about any medication or investigations if required. They can also refer you for physiotherapy if it is felt that that would help.
Please contact the surgery if you would like to make an appointment with any of the physiotherapists.
