Physiotherapy

 

Physiotherapists in Practice

The practice employs a team of physiotherapists to manage musculoskeletal problems.  They are highly skilled clinicians who will often know more than a GP about your particular condition.  They work with the team of clinicians in Briercliffe Surgery to ensure that you get the most appropriate treatment possible and involve other clinicians, such as GPs, if you need further investigation or medication.

 

Physiotherapy can be accessed directly by patients booking into physiotherapy appointments or you can be directed to it via an e-consultation or by another clinician, where appropriate.
