MSK Physiotherapist in Practice
Queen Camel Medical Centre can offer first point of contact (FPOC) access to a musculoskeletal physiotherapist on a Wednesday morning. Patients DO NOT have to have seen or spoken to a GP to access these clinics. They specifically treat people with recent onset joint and back pain not associated with any other medical condition. To book an appointment at one of these clinics ring our reception team and request an MSK Physio appointment, be prepared to answer a few questions about your condition to ensure you are being seen in the most appropriate clinic. Please note, there is also the opportunity to see an MSK practitioner at Bruton Surgery, Millbrook Surgery and Milborne Port Surgery at other times throughout the week. These appointments can also be booked via the Queen Camel reception team.
