Before we can treat you, you must be registered with us as a patient. You can register with us over the phone when you make your first booking or by completing our appointment request form.
After you have booked your first appointment, you will receive an email containing your appointment details and confirming your registration details. Please review your details on the patient letter and if any details are incorrect or missing, please contact us before your appointment so they can be amended.
Your confirmation email will also contain a link to the ‘Pre consultation questionnaire’. It is very important that you click on this link and complete the form online before your first appointment. This contains important questions about your health, which may impact your treatment. The link to this can be found in your confirmation email from us.
Free Pre-Assessment Consultations
We offer every new client the opportunity to have a 15 minute free consultation with one of our physiotherapists. This is done face to face in clinic.
Please note that this does not replace the need for a full assessment and does not include any treatment. It is designed to give you the opportunity to discuss your needs and find out if physiotherapy is right for you before you commit.
Arriving at Your First Appointment
If this is your first time with us, we ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes before your appointment. When you arrive, please report to reception. You will be directed to the appropriate waiting area where your practitioner will meet you at your scheduled appointment time.
Your initial assessment will last approximately 30 minutes. You will be asked your reason for attending, the nature and history of your condition and any details that may be relevant to your assessment or treatment. The Physiotherapist will then conduct a physical examination of the affected area.
Once a diagnosis has been made, your practitioner will explain their findings and outline a treatment plan. The Physiotherapist will try and provide some treatment during your first appointment, however this is dependent upon time available and the nature of your condition.
After your assessment, if required, your Physiotherapist will recommend that you book in for a series of follow up treatments. Treatment cycles will vary dependent upon your condition but typically range between 4-8 sessions per area/condition being treated. All treatment plans are tailored to the individual and will consist of a variety of treatment modalities aimed at relieving symptoms and improving function in line with your goals.
Please remember to wear/bring appropriate clothing so that the Physiotherapist can assess the affected area/joint.

We will make every effort to ensure that your account is processed by your insurer however, it is your responsibility to ensure that the claim meets all the necessary criteria set down in your policy document.
If your insurance company does not settle your claim within 60 days of your appointment or there is a shortfall, then the liability falls to the patient to settle the account directly. We reserve the right to charge you and take payment for all unsettled appointments at our standard self-funding rate.
Appointment slots are reserved for clients at the time of booking. In the event of late cancellation, it is unlikely that we will be able to offer this slot to another patient. We therefore request that you provide us with at least 24 hours’ notice should you need to amend or cancel your booking.
