Noticeboard

Want to know how NHS digital uses your data? See our ‘GDPR’ section of the website for more information on latest updates to the policy and/or to opt out. 

You can now see a musculoskeletal physiotherapist practitioner for joint, muscle or soft tissue pain as the first point of contact instead of the GP. This gives you faster access to expert diagnosis, advice and exercises you need to start tackling the problem. The physiotherapist can also refer you on to hospital services and arrange tests where necessary. Please ask reception for more information or for booking an appointment.
