Our Neighbourhood Access Hubs service has recently been extended to include the provision of physiotherapists.
It is recognised that 30-40% of referrals are MSK (musculo-skeletal) issues and we are aiming to
divert patients to the most appropriate pathway straight away so that they can access timely care.
This additional resource will help us to ensure that we best utilise clinicians, and patients time.
The physio’s currently based in Witney (Chris Braund) and Banbury (John Wiles) are providing an assessment, rather than treatment, service, through the usual Hub referral process. We will be adding another physio to our Hubs in the ValeMed area in autumn 2017.
