NHS Or Private physio?
What are the differences?

 

NHS: When you self- refer for NHS Physio your form will be triaged by a senior physiotherapist. An initial assessment will be provided, within 15 working days, which is usually delivered by telephone or virtually as deemed most appropriate by the clinician. Most patients are given self-management advice and exercises to start their rehabilitation and are expected to try this first before having hands on treatment. If you do not improve, or if the physio feels it necessary, you will be offered further physio appointments, the first of which is usually delivered face to face. A treatment plan will be offered which could include hands on treatments as well as the full range of physio interventions ( excludes Acupuncture) . There is a maximum number of appointments that are available for NHS patients with the emphasis always on self-management.

If you require NHS physio please complete the form below.

 

Private: On booking a private initial physiotherapy assessment you will be offered a face to face appointment, usually within 1-2 working days. You will always be seen by a senior physiotherapist who will provide a working diagnosis and treatment plan, give advice and exercises but will compliment this with hands on treatment and other physio interventions as suits your condition. Further physiotherapy appointments will be offered as required and delivered face to face. Private appointments are generally 30% longer in duration. We are registered with all major healthcare insurance providers and take self-paying patients.

You are very welcome to start on a private basis and transfer to NHS or vice versa as suits your requirements. The benefit of using our private service is that you can stay with the same physiotherapist giving continuity of care.
