Make an appointment
You can make an appointment directly with a physiotherapist at the hospital or you can ask your GP to refer you if you prefer.
Appointments are offered on a one-to-one basis and a full examination and assessment is carried out prior to commencement of a course of treatment.
This ensures you are directed to the physiotherapist with specialist skills in that specific treatment area.

If you have insurance, we can arrange direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
