Primary Care Network First Contact Physiotherapists
We offer face to face and telephone appointments with a physiotherapist based at the surgery. We have 2 physiotherapists who work Thursday and Friday.
Low back and neck pain are the greatest cause of years lost to disability in the UK, with chronic joint pain or osteoarthritis affecting more than 8.75 million people. In addition, musculoskeletal conditions also account for 30% of all GP appointments.
The vast majority of musculoskeletal first contact practitioners are physiotherapists with enhanced skills. They help patients with musculoskeletal issues such as back, neck and joint pain by:
- assessing and diagnosing issues
- giving expert advice on how best to manage their conditions
- referring them onto specialist services if necessary.
By making it easier for patients to access physiotherapist, patients will have quicker access to diagnosis and treatment, helping them to manage their conditions more effectively and recover faster, so they can get back to normal life quickly. However, please bear in mind that if you are already under a team about your condition, then this service wouldn't be appropriate, as this is for new symptoms.
These can be booked through the NHS app/ patient access or by calling us on 01296 424488.
Primary Care Network Social Prescribing
The idea behind Social Prescribing is to help you to have more control over your own health and find ways to improve how you feel.
You can self refer, or a clinician will refer you to a Community Link Worker. They will spend time with you at a one to one appointment where they will listen to what matters to you and work with you to identify possible solutions. They can put you in touch with the people and activities that might help you feel better and will give you support along the way.
What aspects can Link Workers support with?
- Social Isolation
- Finance & Debt
- Caring Role
- Disability Support

It's important that vaccines are given on time for the best protection, but if you or your child missed a vaccine, contact your GP to catch up.
NHS vaccination schedule for Children
|1 year||Hib/MenC (1st dose)
MMR (1st dose)
Pneumococcal (PCV) vaccine (2nd dose)
MenB (3rd dose)
|2 to 10 years||Flu vaccine (every year)|
|3 years and 4 months||MMR (2nd dose)

Your baby can still have their vaccinations if:
- they have a minor illness without a temperature – such as a cold
- they have allergies, asthma, eczema or food intolerances
- they were born prematurely
You can take your baby swimming at any time before and after their immunisations.
Can I refuse my child's vaccinations?
Vaccines are not mandatory in the UK and they cannot be given without your consent.
However, it's important to remember that vaccines will protect your child for many years against a range of serious illnesses.
Without vaccination your child is at greater risk of getting these illnesses.
Follow this link to find out more information on why is it important to be vaccinated: Why vaccination is safe and important - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
If you still wish to decline please complete the following form and email this to firstname.lastname@example.org: Immunisation Decline Form
Can I change my mind about vaccinating my child?
Sometimes parents choose not to vaccinate, but then later decide to make sure their child is protected.
It's best for your child to have their vaccinations according to the NHS vaccination schedule, but it's never too late to check if they can still have them.
Call or visit your GP surgery to make sure your child has any vaccinations they've missed, whatever the reason.
