First Contact Physiotherapists (FCP)

We have recently welcomed Adeel Tariq, who is a local physiotherapist and will be working at Riverside Surgery Thursdays and Fridays. As a FCP he is able to assess patients with soft tissue, muscle and joint pains and decide on the next most appropriate management pathway which may include imaging (x-rays, MRI scan) or referral onwards to the musculoskeletal team in Cressex.

We will continue to triage all our patients who call in and if appropriate to your needs we will offer you an initial assessment with Adeel.
