We now have a First Contact Physiotherapist working here at the Wycliffe Medical Practice.
If you have joint, muscle or bone pain please ask for a direct appointment with our FCP. Our FCP is an advanced practitioner with extensive expertise in the clinical assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal conditions.
They can deal with:
- Sports injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Muscle problems
- Ligament and tendon problems
- Bony Injuries
- Back and Neck pain (including when this causes pain in arms or legs or nerve symptoms e.g. pins and needles or numbness)
Our First Contact Physiotherapist is able to assess, diagnose and suggest first line treatment. They can also refer patients for a course of physiotherapy treatment, order investigations or make referrals into secondary care using the same pathways as a GP.
You do not need to see a GP first to book an appointment with our FCP- please call our reception team on 01455 553531.
