First Contact Physiotherapy Service
Our ‘in –house’ physiotherapist service allows you to see a First contact physiotherapist (FCP) who is an advanced practitioner working within the practice with extensive expertise in the clinical assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. They will see patients with (suspected or diagnosed) musculoskeletal conditions (i.e any problems involving muscle/joints/bones etc) as the first point of contact, often instead of a GP, and can be accessed directly by contacting the practice’s reception.
Typically your appointment will involve assessment, diagnosis and first-line treatment. Your first contact physiotherapist can also refer patients for a course of physiotherapy treatment, refer to our specialist MSK team for further investigations and management or make referrals into secondary care services using the same pathways as GPs.
As a person-centred service, most appointments include self-management advice, social prescribing, and discussions about physical activity and fitness for work.
How is this service different to self- referral to Physiotherapy?
Typically, self-referral services will be accessed by those who know they need to see a physiotherapist. Unlike self-referral or direct access, First contact Physiotherapy is not (early access to) a course of physiotherapy. They will assess fully and should you require further treatment, they can make a referral into the Physiotherapy service.
INR (Warfarin) Clinics
This clinic monitors our patients on Warfarin. A blood test is carried out during the consultation and the result is immediately available.
A member of our district nurse team will visit those patients who for medical reasons cannot attend the surgery.
These appointments are for minor surgical procedures e.g:
- Skin biopsies
- Removal of moles
Please see a doctor or nurse to discuss anything you might like operated on, to assess the most suitable procedure for you.
A doctor can treat minor skin conditions with liquid nitrogen in this clinic. Please speak with a doctor to establish whether this is suitable for you.
Respiratory Disease Clinics (Asthma & COPD)
These clinics, for patients aged five years and over are run by our practice nurse who specialises in the care of patients diagnosed with respiratory disease.
Please make an appointment for children under five to be seen by a doctor.
Women’s Health Clinics (Family Planning and Smears)
Our practice nurses run these clinics in conjunction with the practice doctors offering:
- General contraceptive advice
- Oral contraception
- Depo Provera (progesterone only) injection
- Coil checks
- Breast awareness
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Cervical screening (smears)
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a contraceptive pill review, please use our Contraceptive Pill Review form.
Cervical Screen Test
Cervical screening is a method of preventing cervical cancer by detecting abnormal cells in the cervix (lower part of the womb).
Cervical screening is not a test for cancer, but it is a test to check the health of the cervix. Most women’s test results show that everything is normal. But for one in 20 women, the test will show some changes in the cells of the cervix. Most of these changes will not lead to cervical cancer and the cells will go back to normal on their own. In some cases, the abnormal cells need to be treated to prevent them becoming a problem later.
There is a national programme to vaccinate girls aged 12-13 against human papilloma virus (HPV).
There is also a three-year catch up campaign that will offer the HPV vaccine (also known as the cervical cancer jab) to 13-18 year old girls.
The programme is delivered largely through secondary schools, and consists of three injections that are given over a six-month period. In the UK, more than 1.4 million doses have been given since the vaccination programme started.
