The First Contact Physiotherapy (FCP) service is available at the practice for expert assessment and management of musculoskeletal conditions. Anita, the physiotherapist, is at the practice every other Thursday and one Friday a month. You can find out more information here: First Contact Physiotherapy
As part of our physiotherapy service based in the practice, we believe it’s important to offer you immediate support when you feel like you need it.
We are introducing a new NHS self-referral service to help connect you to the right care, in the right place.
Phio is a clinically-supported, digital musculoskeletal system. It is a free interactive online tool that quickly and accurately signposts you to the right pathway to support your MSK condition.
The Phio assessment takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and your answers will always be assessed by a qualified physiotherapy team. If your condition is deemed suitable, you will be invited to download an app on your smartphone with a programme of exercises tailored to your condition. You should receive this within 48 hours. Once you start, a team of physiotherapists are on hand to monitor and support you via a two-way chat.
This service is totally free, is overseen by the physiotherapy team at Phio, and will not impact your access to our other care services.
Access Phio here.
