First Contact Physio
We now have an experienced physio working in the practice, Georgia, who is the first point of contact for all musculoskeletal problems.
She is actually more expert than the GPs in assessing these problems, and has been employed to specifically provide easy access into the specialist musculoskeletal service. She can assess patients, request X-Rays, provide treatment plans and do specialist referrals to consultants in Rheumatology, Orthopaedics and other clinics when needed, including when scans are needed.
This speeds up access to specialist services, and frees up GP and nurse appointments for other problems requiring their expertise.
To book an appointment, please speak to reception and ask for the First Contact Physio. Our reception staff may also signpost you to these appointments when this is the most appropriate way of dealing with your musculoskeletal problems.
Alternatively, you can contact the Sussex MSK Partnership here for muscular and joint problems. This service includes self-referral as well as self-care for these conditions.
