Don’t wait to see the GP or struggle on with aches and pains. If it’s a new ache or pain with a muscle, joint or bone, see our first contact physiotherapist.
You don’t need to see the GP first. Simply tell our receptionists that you would like to see our first contact physiotherapist and they shall book you an appointment – it’s usually quicker than waiting to see the GP too.
Don’t worry if you need medication or a fit note. The first contact physiotherapist can also arrange those with the GP for you there and then.
