Mr Lyons understands that General Practitioners may encounter difficulty obtaining timely specialist appointments for patients with acute shoulder injuries or conditions. He is mindful that some patients do require urgent assessment in order to establish whether there outcome and wellbeing might be compromised by a delay in treatment.
If you are concerned that your patient may have such a shoulder disorder, please contact my office by phone or by the "Contact Us form" email option. My staff are especially aware that if a treating doctor flags a concern about their patient they must promptly bring the matter to my attention. If I am not able to speak with you immediately, I will make every effort to contact you at the earliest opportunity to hear of your concerns and if necessary prioritise an appointment.
