Making an Appointment

You can self-refer without seeing your GP and make an appointment directly with a physiotherapist; alternatively you can ask your GP or Consultant to refer you. Physiotherapy may be covered by your medical insurance. You will need to check your cover with your insurer first as you may need a GP referral. You can pay for your treatment by cash, debit or credit card. The initial appointment may last up to one hour, depending on your condition; follow-up appointments usually last 30 minutes.

Our outpatient appointment system is flexible, with morning and afternoon appointments.
