We would like to notify our patients that our reception team will be asking you some brief details regarding your request for an appointment. Please indicate the nature and urgency of your problem so we can help you as efficiently as possible. This will ensure that you are booked in with the correct healthcare professional and that the quickest route to treatment or advice is taken.
Milestone Surgery now has a Clinical Pharmacist working within the practice 3 days a week. Jo will be assisting the practice to deal with prescription queries and will have telephone appointments on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. If patients have questions about their medication it may well be appropriate to ask for one of these appointments rather than a doctors telephone appointment. Please note that these appointments are not to be used for merely requesting repeat prescriptions.
Jo will also be holding appointments for patients with hypertension here at the surgery.
Physiotherapy Assessment Specialists
This team is highly trained to an expert level in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal/orthopaedic problems. They are able to offer a rapid assessment service for both new and long standing muscular, joint and back pain; for example, low back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain and foot and ankle pain.
They are able to advise on appropriate rehabilitation/exercise programmes, refer for physiotherapy treatment, x-rays and scans. From April 3rd we are lucky to be able to provide in conjunction with our local GP federation and Frimley Park Hospital, 2-3 clinics a week here at Milestone. Access to the clinics will be directly via our reception staff and it will not be necessary to see a GP first.
