Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a waiting list?
We can have a waiting list when we are busy but you would be advised of this and the length of it at your initial contact.
How long does a treatment take?
We allow between 45 and 60 minutes for the initial
assessment and 30 minutes for each follow up appointment thereafter.
How much does it cost?
Initial assessment: £50.00.
Follow up appointments: £45.00.
Our charges are reviewed annually in April.
Do I need to see a doctor first?
No, chartered physiotherapists are trained in the
assessment and treatment of physical problems. If we feel we need
more information or feel you may need medical investigations we
will ask you to contact your GP.
Can I come for private physiotherapy whilst on
the NHS waiting list?
Yes. We are happy to pass on information to your NHS
physiotherapist when your appointment comes through. You cannot
have both treatments at the same time.
How many treatments will I need?
This is very variable and not always easy to predict
at the initial assessment. As a general rule the longer you have
had a problem the longer it takes to sort out. Most problems will
settle in about 4-6 sessions.
How often will I need to come?
This will depend on you problem.
• Some people will be able to manage their problem after the
initial assessment, treatment and advice.
• Some more acute problems would benefit from being seen twice
a week initially to help influence the healing process.
• Some chronic problems may need once a week initially and
then once a month to keep the problem under control.
• Some problems involving muscle weakness or joint stiffness
may need specific exercises and may need 2 to 3 weeks practice before
review and progression of the regime.
As Chartered Physiotherapists we will be able to advise
you what we feel would be best for your problem but the decision
regarding further treatment is ultimately your own.
Do you arrange contracts with companies and organisations?
Yes we are happy to organise this and we currently have links with local companies and organisations.
