Summary

Currently, walk in services are unavailable.  Patients need to visit the website for advice and if they have not improved following the guidance, telephone 01495 768641, 01495 768642, or 01495 768616, Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4.00pm.

Patients must be registered with a Torfaen GP Surgery. Information and waiting area is in the main outpatients department.



You are now able to access physiotherapy assessment directly rather than first seeing your GP if you have a musculoskeletal problem.  From this brief assessment the physiotherapist will identify if you:



  • Need to be placed on the waiting list for full physiotherapy assessment and treatment

  • Need to see your GP for further investigation or referral to another health care team

  • Can be given reassurance and quick exercises to manage by yourself



Patients will need to complete a self referral prior to being seen.

There is limited availability at each session and patients will be seen on a first come first served basis.

You do not need to telephone in advance.

This is a service for adults who have a muscle or joint problem (for example, neck or back pain, shoulder or knee problems, “tennis elbow” or ankle sprain) and are able to attend outpatient physiotherapy.

A referral from your GP or hospital consultant will still be required for physiotherapy assessment if you are between 16 and 18 years of age and under the care of a hospital consultant. If you are between 16 and 18 years of age and are not under the care of a hospital consultant, please attend your appointment with a parent or person with parental responsibility.
