We offer Specialist Physiotherapy Clinics, for patients with muscular, joint or bone problems. These clinics are held three times a week and are staffed by an Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner.
The appointments will be an alternative to a GP appointment.
These appointments are aimed at assessment and forward planning. Assessment may include x-ray or blood-testing if appropriate. Analgesia can be advised or prescribed if required. Should continued treatment be required, then an onward referral to Physiotherapy can be made. If specialist advice is required, then a referral can be made to a specialist hospital clinic.
If you telephone for an appointment for a muscle, bone or joint problem, reception staff will be able to offer an appointment in the Specialist Physiotherapy Clinic.
