How to book an Appointment

Please contact a member of the admin team who will be able to book you an appointment with the First Contact Physiotherapist. You do not need to speak with your doctor.

 

Your Appointment

Most appointments are 20 minutes and, like most GP appointments, are delivered via the telephone, video or face to face.


First Contact Physios use the same referral pathways as GPs to secondary care, x-ray and social prescribing. Where necessary, First Contact Physios can refer to the GP (and vice versa).
