Physiotherapy can help you to aid recovery after injury or illness. Physiotherapists treat muscle and joint sprains and strains, as well as neck, shoulder and back pain. They use a variety of techniques which can help you return to your normal activities both at home and at work. As part of your treatment the Physiotherapist will offer advice and exercise programmes to help prevent the problem recurring, and the Physiotherapist will liaise closely with your doctor.
Physiotherapy clinics are held at the Practice on Mondays and Wednesdays
Did you know that you can come to see a Physiotherapist WITHOUT having to SEE YOUR DOCTOR?

During your pregnancy you will be looked after by the Community Midwifery team.
When you discover you are pregnant you should contact the midwives team for your first point of contact. You will be given an appointment for 10 weeks - your first Antenatel appointment - and asked to pick up a 'Booking Pack' from the Health Centre.
At this week 10 appointment you will have a routine health check by the Midwife and a plan for your antenatal care will be discussed. Blood tests will also be carried out.
The Community Midwifery Service also provides groups & clinics as well as Intrapartum and Postnatal care.
Your midwife can be contacted every day on 01464 - 821532 between 08:30am and 5:00p.m.
If you need to speak to a midwife outside these hours phone the unit with whom you are booked for delivery.
Another useful contact is: Aberdeen Maternity Hospital (01224 – 553602)
