First Contact Physiotherapy

Quick access to musculoskeletal assessment, diagnosis, treatment and advice

A First Contact Physiotherapist is now available at Leeds Student Medical Practice.  They are highly skilled health care professionals and work to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

They have extensive knowledge of assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal conditions and can refer for further treatment and order investigations in exactly the same way as GPs.

The benefits include quick access to expert musculoskeletal assessment, diagnosis, treatment and advice, prevention of short-term problems becoming long-term conditions and the opportunity to gain lifestyle/physical activity advice.

Appointments take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Practice and are bookable up to 5 days in advance.
