Our new injection service is run by Joanna Gardiner, a chartered physiotherapist who qualified in 1986 and has a great deal of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of Orthopaedic and Musculoskeletal problems.
She works primarily in the NHS as an Extended Scope Practitioner in the Outpatient Orthopaedic department where she diagnoses orthopaedic and musculoskeletal problems. She then either lists directly for surgery, administers a steroid injection or refers on to Physiotherapy, Orthotics or Podiatry etc.
She runs a separate injection clinic, where GP’s and other Allied Health Professionals have diagnosed the problem and then referred onto her for specific injections.
She is a supplementary practitioner in the NHS upgrading to independent prescribing later in 2017, so at the moment for private clients, she would write to your GP requesting the correct prescription for your condition, which you would then collect and then bring the drugs to your appointment.
