Every Friday at our Cheadle Hulme sit we have a first point of contact physiotherapist. Our receptionists can book you appointments for this. The value of using physiotherapists with advanced practice skills means that patients can access physiotherapy expertise without the need to see a GP first.
Self Referral forms can be collected from the GP Surgery or any Podiatry clinics which once completed, you can be seen by a podiatrist.
This service does have walk in clinic times which can be found on the The Northern Sexual Health website, alternatively you can call 0161 204 5888 to arrange an appointment.
The Minor eye clinics can be found at most local opticians. This service provides treatment for people with minor eye problems. GP's can not treat eyes and always recommend seeing an optician for any problems relating to your eyes. Minor Eye Clinic
