Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a referral to come and see you? 

No, you can self refer for private physiotherapy.

 

Can you talk to my doctor?

With your permission we can request information from your Gp or Consultant, and send a report or communicate with them if necessary on your behalf.

 

Can I have both NHS and Private treatment at the same time?

Yes,  It is important that the therapists communicate to ensure they are both working along the same lines and able to compliment each other.

 

How much is treatment?

Session costs vary depending on whether it is an assessment or treatment session and the duration of treatment required. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we can give you an accurate cost.

 

How often will I need Physiotherapy? 

Everyone’s needs are different, some clients require once or twice a week for a period of time, others may require only one or two sessions. Others may require an intense period of back to back input. We can discuss what would be the best option for you after we have assessed you. We will  give you advice and activities to work on in between therapy sessions to optimise your outcome.

 

How long are the sessions?

Initial assessment is usually about 1 hour. Follow up sessions can vary between 30 mins and 1 hour depending on your needs and abilities.

 

Consent To Treatment

All assessments and treatments will be performed by a qualified, registered and insured therapist who will practice within the defined scope of practice as per the relevant governing bodies in the United Kingdom. You must advise your therapist of any factor that may affect your treatment or diagnosis. Following examination, an explanation of the therapist’s opinion and proposed treatment will be provided. It is important that you fully understand the diagnosis, recommendations, procedures and treatment techniques that may be involved, as well as any likely effects. Your therapist will make every effort to ensure you do, but if you are in doubt, please ask for further information. With certain conditions, a degree of undress may be required and this will be explained at the time by the therapist. You are entitled to be accompanied during your treatment if you wish.

 

Payment

Invoices can be sent for blocks of treatment when given on a regular basis. Otherwise payment is usually required at the time of your appointment.

Receipts will be provided if necessary. Cash or cheque are accepted.

 

Do you take Private Health Insurance Clients? 

Not as yet, but we are hoping to in the near future.
