New Physiotherapist service - We now have two Specialist Physiotherapists based at Pathhead Medical Centre. They can be booked as an alternative to an appointment with the GP, for people with a muscle, bone or joint problem. There is no need to see the GP first.

Contact reception and they will ask you a few questions to make sure you are allocated an appointment with the most appropriate person.

MEDICATION IMPROVEMENTS - the practice is now running some prescribing improvement projects to ensure that you receive the safest and most cost-effective medications for your conditions. You will receive a letter directly if you are affected by any of these changes.
