WITHDRAWAL OF PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICES FROM WOOLER

A new JMAPS (joint musculoskeletal and pain clinic) service started across Northumberland on the 1st July.  As part of this, the CCG decided that the physio service in Wooler would be withdrawn but, due to pressure from the practices and patient groups, they have agreed that the service will continue for one day a week from August.

We have been further informed today (9th July) that any patients wishing to be referred to orthopaedic services for treatment have to have contact with the JMAPS service first and we are therefore unable to refer directly to orthopaedics. 

This is something, again, which we were not informed about by the CCG and are awaiting further communication from them.

We will continue to fight to maintain physio services in Wooler as will our patient group.

testsTest Results

If you have online access to your records you will be able to see test results without having to contact the surgery.

For those without online access, please ring the surgery between 9am and 1pm to obtain blood test results.  Most tests are available after 2 days but some tests take longer.  The receptionist can only give you the message attached to the result as authorised by the doctor.  They will not be able to discuss the results further.

Results can only be given to the patient who has had the tests done and only with the doctor’s approval.  If you have any queries about your results discuss them with the doctor via a telephone appointment. 

You do not need to come to see the doctor for test results unless we contact you and ask you to make an appointment.
