Physiotherapy at BMP!

An advanced Practice Physiotherapist has joined our team. If you have a bone, muscle or joint problem they are best to see you, rather than a GP.

How can they help me?

Make a diagnosis & develop a plan.

Provide muscle or joint pain advice.

Referral for further investigations

For ongoing treatment, you may be referred to the main physiotherapy service or Orthopaedics at the hospital.

Wendy is in the surgery all day Tuesday and Thursday.

Telephone update

We have had a new auto attend answering machine facility added to our phone line.

This facility will now notify the first 10 callers of their place in the queue. Any callers after this will hear an engaged tone. On hearing the engaged tone, we would advise to hang up and call back later.

If you are still in the queue after 12.30pm, or after 6pm, unfortunately your call cannot be answered. We would appreciate if you could call back during our opening hours,

BMP Refurbishment

The internal and external works from our Practice refurb are now completed. The roof of our building is now being upgraded as an additional piece of much needed work. Many thanks to all patients and staff for their patience during this time of disruption.

BMP Refurbishment - Parking

Parking

As you may be aware, half of the Surgery parking spaces are being used to house contractor portakabins, etc. Car parking spaces are therefore in even more demand than is normal. We would encourage you, therefore, to think about whether you are able to come to the surgery without your car.

Updates

We will aim to keep you posted on any relevant developments as they transpire.

Many thanks for you ongoing patience, your BMP team!
