Noticeboard

Mental health awareness week starts every year on the second Monday in May – in 2019 from 13 – 19 May.

In a world that is increasingly opening up to – and understanding those with – mental health issues, it’s no surprise that Mental Health Awareness Week is now a firmer fixture on calendars around the UK and beyond. It’s organised by the Mental Health Foundation, and focuses on a major issue each and every year.

Go2Physio

As part of the go2physio pilot which the Walkden Medical Centre is participating in, you may be able to access NHS physiotherapy without having to see your GP first.

Physiotherapists are physical activity specialists working with you to enable you to manage your condition.   They are expertly skilled to assess, diagnose, and manage patients with musculoskeletal conditions much in the same way as doctors. 

Musculoskeletal conditions such as muscle or joint problems like back pain, knee pain or sprains are best managed by physiotherapists. Physiotherapists can transform people’s lives by:

  • Reducing pain

  • Improving quality of life

  • Keeping people out of hospital

  • Reducing disability

  • Reversing the deterioration of conditions

  • Visit www.srft.nhs.uk/go2physio to complete a self-referral form to access go2physio clinics, provided by NHS physiotherapists.
