Covid-19 Update


Face Coverings

From 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.
 
A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head. It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.

New measures to increase services
Our staff have been working hard to respond to the coronavirus pandemic and ensure the safety and quality of our services for all patients.
 
Just like the rest of the NHS, our number one priority for the last few months has been ensuring that all those who need urgent care - not just those with coronavirus - have been able to get it when they need it.  Combined with the need to avoid unnecessary contact to reduce the spread of the virus, this has meant that some non-urgent appointments may have been postponed, and others delivered differently using technology.
 
We are now preparing to gradually increase some important face-to-face services, but only where this can be done safely - the virus is still circulating and we don’t want to put our patients, the public or our staff at greater risk.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.

YOUR PHYSIO

Meet the team

Our Team

Physiotherapy

We have a large team of dedicated Physiotherapists who specialise in the management of musculoskeletal pain problems. They are based both in our central 'hubs' and in some local GP Practices. They assist in helping you understand the cause of your pain problem and offer multiple ways to help you manage or resolve your problem.

The Physiotherapy team are also responsible for running our condition management programmes for Hip and Knee Osteoarthritis, longstanding back pain, and Shoulder rotator cuff syndrome. 

Extended Scope Practitioners (ESP's)

Our ESP's are specialists in the field of musculoskeletal problems. They all have a health care professional background (they are Physiotherapists or Podiatrists) and have undertaken both post graduate study, as well as extensive periods of joint working with relevent medical specialists to develop their competencies and skills.

They fulfil the role of case managers, offering diagnostic expertise and management advice on complex cases, or cases that have failed to resolve. They are able to request further investigations, perform routine injection procedures as well as some ultrasound guided injections, and can arrange surgical opinion or place on a surgical waiting list where surgical management of a problem is required.

Administrative and Secretarial Team

Our administrative and secretarial team are responsible for ensuring all aspects of your journey run smoothly from start to finish. They ensure that your referral is handled in a timely manner. They are responsible for booking your appointments, welcoming you when you come and visit us, and answering your queries if you call.  Our secretarial team support the ESP's and ensure quick communication of clinic letters back to GP's.
