How to get treatment

Anyone can receive treatment from a Chartered Physiotherapist by contacting us directly. You do NOT need a GP referral unless you want to claim on your medical insurance. We will only contact your GP with your approval.

Most private medical insurance schemes pay for physiotherapy if you have outpatient cover. There will either be an excess to pay, a limit on the number of treatments you can have or a financial limit.

Please contact the clinic to arrange an appointment:

All of our Physiotherapists are registered with the CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) and HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council)
