Physiotherapy Self-Referral Brighton & Hove
Regardless of your recent travel history if you have recently developed a cough or fever please do not attend your appointment. You can familiarise yourself with the symptoms and risk factors for Coronavirus on the NHS website
and on the Government's information page for Coronavirus
. If you are concerned contact NHS 111 who will advise you what to do next.
We request you do not self-refer within the first 6 weeks of developing a new condition.
This is because 86 out of 100 people who develop ‘new’ symptoms e.g. shoulder pain get better within 6 weeks. If your symptoms are less than 6 weeks' old you may be able to self-manage with simple advice and exercise. Please visit our website www.sussexmskpartnershipcentral.co.uk/self-care/
for up-to-date information that may help you to manage your symptoms.
However, if you are concerned or your condition is worsening please contact your GP or phone NHS 111.
