First Contact Physiotherapist Service

We are delighted to announce we now have a “First contact Physiotherapy service”.

This service is provided across all practices within the Hounslow Health Primary Care Network.  Sergio Correia is based at Maswell Park Health Centre mid-week and at Heart of Hounslow on Saturday mornings.

“First Contact” means that you can go direct to a Physio for an assessment without needing to see a doctor!  They have additional training to ensure that nothing more serious is missed.

The physio will be able to:

  • Assess you and diagnose what’s happening
  • Give expert advice on how best to manage your condition
  • Refer you on to specialist services if necessary

Sergio will initially do phone and video consultations but will see patients face to face with PPE when required.
