First Contact Physiotherapy

Seeing a Physiotherapist first instead of your GP could be right for you

If you have a muscle, back or joint problem, seeing a Physiotherapist first instead of your GP could be right for you…

Call Reception on 01738 625842. You will be asked if you would be happy to be seen by a First Contact Physiotherapist. If you would, Reception can book the first available appointment with the physiotherapist (this may not be in your own practice). If you don’t want to be seen by First Contact Physiotherapy, you can book an appointment with a healthcare professional within the practice.

What can the physiotherapist do?

The physiotherapist can assess you and diagnose what’s happening. They can give expert advice on how best to manage your condition. They can also refer you on for further treatment, investigations or to specialist services if required.
