Sam Richard is our Physiotherapist at Culloden Medical Practice and is available for appointments on Mondays and Wednesdays with follow up ‘phone appointments on Fridays. Please note Sam is based at Culloden Dental Clinic (opposite Culloden Library) and not in the Surgery.
If you are aged 16+ (or aged 13+ with an adult), you can book a direct appointment with the reception staff to see Sam instead of making a GP appointment – no referral needed from your GP and you don’t need to fill out any forms either.
This service gives patients improved access to assessment for musculoskeletal symptoms affecting your joints, bones, muscles and soft tissue conditions.
Sam can provide diagnosis, self-management advice, exercises as well as onward referrals and investigations such as x rays.
At your appointment she will assess your symptoms and discuss your treatment options. She can answer any questions and help you decide how best to manage your condition.
To make an appointment, simply ask reception staff at the GP practice for a physio appointment. You can also watch this short clip about the service – First Contact Physiotherapist
