MSK Specialists

MSK Specialists, available by appointment at the surgery Wednesdays and Fridays, any muscle, bone or joint problems.

Please speak to one of the receptionists and book an appointment.

We have two very experienced Musculoskeletal (MSK) Extended Scope Practitioner(ESP) Physiotherapists working at our practice in a First Contact Practitioner(FCP) role. This is part of a national initiative for patients to see the right clinician in the right place. MSK practitioners are best placed to see patients with musculoskeletal problems as the first point of contact. They can assess your condition, request investigations, diagnose the problem and offer first-line management to help resolve the problem. They can also make onward referral to appropriate specialists like physiotherapy, orthopaedics, pain management or rheumatology as required. One of the benefits of this role is that the GP appointments are then more readily available for patients who have a more medical-based problem.
