Noticeboard

We would like to welcome Darren our MSK Specialist to the team

Darren is our Musculoskeletal Practitioner and is a Chartered Physiotherapist. He is able to assess musculoskeletal problems (joints, bones and muscles) and provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan.  You can now book an appointment directly with him either via the online booking service or reception without needing to see the GP first.

Some of the conditions he can see are:

-          Joint pain

-          Back and neck pain

-          Sciatica

-          Osteoarthritis

-          Muscle, ligament, tendon injuries

-          Sports injuries

-          Work related injuries

If you require a period of treatment or rehabilitation from a physiotherapist then Darren can refer you into the local services directly. If necessary, he can also refer you on for further investigations (blood tests/x-rays etc.) or for specialist consultations such as with Orthopaedic or Rheumatology consultants

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
