Muscle or joint problems?

Did you know that you can now choose to have a direct appointment with a physiotherapist without having to see the GP first?

Our practice offers short 15-minute physio assessments. The appointment includes a brief assessment, advice and signposting. If he/she thinks that you need further investigation, medication, referral or treatment, he/she will send a message to the GP to arrange for you so that in most cases, a separate appointment with the GP is not required.
If you are otherwise well, the physiotherapist can see you about the following problems:

  • Back pain
  • Spinal pain
  • Neck pain
  • Pain in the elbow, wrist or hand
  • Shoulder pain on movement
  • Pain in the hip, knee or ankle  

Call the GP practice on the usual number and ask to see the physio.

Medication query?

Our practice now has a pharmacist working alongside our GPs to handle medicines-related queries and work. Working this way not only allows our GPs more time to focus on patients with complex health needs but it means our patients get the very best care when it comes to medicines-related issues from the experts in medicine.

Our pharmacist works closely with our GPs to carry out medicine reviews, authorise repeat prescriptions and handle medication queries amongst other tasks.

If we think our pharmacist can handle your query when you call, we shall give you more information about this at the time.
