Physiotherapy at Runnymede Hospital offers you a personalised service with an initial assessment of your condition, allowing treatment techniques to be tailored to your goals and objectives. All of our physiotherapists are registered with the HCPC (Health Care Professions Council) and CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) and work closely as part of an integrated multi-disciplinary team within our hospital. This allows patients to benefit from prompt referrals with rapid access to imaging technology to accurately diagnose and aid treatment pathways.
At Runnymede Hospital we offer the following services:
- Acupuncture physiotherapy – can be used on its own or in combination with physiotherapy to help treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions.
- Electrotherapy - is the use of electrical energy to manage pain, rehabilitate muscles and increase the range of motion.

COVID-19 Remote Consultations Update - 7/6/20
Our physiotherapy services remain open for business, and we continue to accept new referrals - you do not need to have seen your GP or a Consultant to refer yourself for Physiotherapy.
However, the safety of patients and our staff is of paramount importance to us, so we continue to operate a ‘Virtual first’ approach, as recommended by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
