Physiotherapy

Lander Medical Practice Physiotherapy Department

The Team

We have a small team of highly experienced physiotherapists with a wide breadth of knowledge and experience across a variety of areas. They are supported by a member of administration support staff and a physiotherapy assistant.

  • Paula Pender – Physiotherapist – PG Dip MCSP HCPC
  • Andrew Highton – Physiotherapist
  • Jane Whinney – Physiotherapist
  • Sue Ballard – Physiotherapy Admin

What we offer

We see a variety of generalised musculoskeletal conditions from acute to chronic problems.

We also are a recognised ‘Any Qualified Provider’ (AQP) for a Neck and Back Pain Service which we run jointly with the Three Spires Physiotherapy department. Patients with acute neck or back pain i.e. whiplash, stiffness, neck related headaches, mechanical low back pain, posture related back and neck pain, are seen through this pathway.

Our facilities

We have an excellent Physiotherapy unit within the Lander Medical Practice at the Truro Health Park consisting of a clinic room and gymnasium which is used for rehabilitation and some Physio led exercise classes.

Who can refer to us?

We only accept referrals to Physiotherapy from our own Lander GP’s and do not take self referral from patients or from other sources.

However, we can accept referrals from outside of the practice for our AQP Neck and Back service if patients fulfil the criteria.

If you would like to speak to a member of the team please ring the Lander Medical Practice number on 01872 243712 between 8.00am and 1:30pm, Monday to Friday when a member of the admin team will be available to answer your call.
