Out of Hours Physiotherapy Service
The Southport and Formby Out of Hours Physiotherapy Service brings together specialist musculoskeletal (MSK) clinicians to subjectively assess, diagnose and manage MSK conditions via convenient telephone appointments in evenings and weekends. We discuss MSK conditions and decide whether this can be managed with advice and exercises, or if there is a need for further sessions of face-to-face physiotherapy.
Our team includes specialist clinicians covering all musculoskeletal areas, who can provide a comprehensive assessment and management plan in a telephone setting. Our aim is to get you an appointment with the right person quickly, to enable management of your condition as early as possible.
Download the Out of Hours Physiotherapy Service Patient Information Leaflet for further details about the service and how you can make an appointment.
If you are asked to have blood tests, an X-ray or CT scan during a consultation in the 7 Day GP Service, these will be scheduled to be done at your local Phlebotomy Service or Radiology Department. Blood tests typically 3-5 working days to review, and X-rays and CT scans typically take 7-10 working days.
All tests requested are reviewed by a GP at the 7 Day service. You will only receive the results of your test if you require further clinical intervention or advice. Your GP practice will not have access to your results. To discuss your results, please contact the 7 Day GP service directly.
Call 01704 395 755. The telephone line is available Monday to Friday, 9am-9pm and Saturday to Sunday 9am-1pm. Please do not call this number to book an appointment, this must be done through your own GP practice. You can also email general, non-urgent queries to firstname.lastname@example.org
