Muscle and joint pain

Find out how to get support for muscle and joint pain.

First Contact Physio

Do you have a bone, joint or muscle problem? A specialist physiotherapist can contact you instead of a GP. This should give you faster access to expert diagnosis, and you’ll be provided with advice and exercises that you need to start tackling the problem.

The physio can also refer you on to hospital services where necessary, order tests and write prescriptions.

This service is free to all NHS patients registered at the surgery.
