From 1st October 2017 GP Surgeries within Eastern Cheshire CCG are offering a new service for musculoskeletal (MSK) treatment and physiotherapy.  There is a triage and clinical assessment service which you can now refer yourself to without seeing a GP first.  This service is carried out by InHealth Ltd who will assess your needs and may send you for community physiotherapy, this is offered by 11 providers for you to choose from and you can be seen locally in Poynton.

You can find more information on this service including FAQ's, the service leaflet and the self-referral form here.  There are also links to find out more about your symptoms and self-help.

 

 

East Cheshire NHS Trusts Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Service self-help website is also a great resource available to all patients.  It provides help with common musculoskeletal conditions and includes advice and videos of physiotherapy exercises, plus local information including exercise classes and services.
