For Musculoskeletal issues, for example, back and neck pain, sprains or strains, joint aches and pains, whiplash, sport injuries, The Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation and our GP's at Handbridge Medical Centre, recommend you book to see a Physio first and foremost.
Before the Physio First service was available patients would have long waits to be referred to see a Physiotherapist at the hospital, however with the new physio first scheme, you can book the appointment yourself, without having to wait to see a GP first, and without having to wait for your referral to be processed and having to wait in long waiting list.
Physio First clinics are held around different locations in our area, including, Lache Health Centre, Western Avenue Medical Centre, City Walls Medical Centre and The Countess of Chester Extended Hours. To book an appointment please contact our reception team.
