 Coronavirus and Self-isolation - Are you elderly, unwell or lonely?


 

You may now 'Self-Refer' to Rushcliffe Physiotherapy Service 

A new service (Phio) is a state-of-the-art digital assessment tool to assess your joint or muscle injury.

If you are a patient at this practice, you can self-refer for an assessment with Phio today.

The tool has been created by expert physiotherapists, is available on-line 24 hours per day/7 days per week, is underpinned by latest clinical guidelines and is quick and easy to use.

Visit https://www.circlehealth.co.uk/integratedcare/msk/phio/ to get started.

 The tool uses efficient clinical decision trees to accurately assess and signpost you to appropriate care pathways. Phio will ask questions about you and your symptoms then, based on your responses, signpost you to the most appropriate level of care, for example face to face physiotherapy, extended scope physiotherapy or telephone/remote management.

 If your condition is not suitable for the Physiotherapy service, or there are any clinical concerns, these will be detected by your responses and Phio will signpost you accordingly to the most appropriate service.  For peace of mind all assessments are reviewed by a physiotherapist to ensure the correct decision has been made.
