New Service First Contact Physiotherapy

On the 1st September 2020 the new First Contact Physiotherapy Service will launch.   

This service is aimed at people suffering from musculosketal and joint problems. It has been recognised, where clinically appropriate, that patients should be triaged and have a consultation with a Physiotherapist, who is better qualified to treat musculoskeletal and joint problems, rather than see a GP or Nurse Practitioner and then be referred and wait longer for appropriate help.

The service has been set up in partnership with Allied Health Professionals (Suffolk). Initially appointments will take place over the phone during a 20 minute slot between 9.30am until 5.30pm Monday – Friday, with face to face consultations happening only where clinically necessary at Framfield House Surgery in Woodbridge. 

We recommend you contact the surgery in the normal way to use this service and our Care Navigators will book an appointment for you. 

Bethany Scott, MCSP, BSc (Hons), MSc and Kyle Tanner MCSP, BSc (Hons), MSc are experienced physiotherapists who will initially phone triage patients (due to COVID) and arrange face to face appointments where clinically necessary. They will be able to request further investigations, following an initial triage assessment and in consultation with your own GP.
