I have a close working relationship with many of the local GPs who regularly refer patients who are looking for a rapid solution to their problems.
In order to be an effective musculoskeletal physiotherapist it is essential that close links are formed with orthopaedic surgeons and other medical consultants. Through attending local study days, lectures and communication over patients I have forged links with a range of specialists and I am happy to liaise with them when a patient requires further investigations and possibly surgery. Many of these surgeons will also refer patients who need physiotherapy and rehabilitation to my clinic.
Some of these specialists have websites which will give you useful information and these are listed below, others provide leaflets which Jackie can provide if it becomes necessary to see a consultant.
