Frequently asked questions


Am I suitably qualified?

I am a Chartered Physiotherapist and a member of the Health Professions Council. 

Do I need a Doctor's referral?

Any patient can book an appointment with myself without a Doctor's referral. However some insurance companies may require a referral letter before physiotherapy treatment commences. It is therefore advisable that if you have private medical cover you contact your insurers first to check your policy requirements.

Can I park at the clinic and is it wheelchair accessible?

I have free parking on the driveway of my house and although there is one step to get into the house, I have a wheelchair ramp available on request. 

What do I need to wear?

You may be comfortable bringing shorts to change into and a vest type top. You will be asked to undress to a level that I can assess you fully and some of my treatments can be performed through light clothing. Your privacy and dignity will be maintained at all times.

Can I Self Pay?

If you do not have Health Insurance cover, I will see you on a self pay basis, and you do not need a Doctor's referral for this.

How can I Pay?

For self pay patients I accept Cash or Cheque. There is a cash machine in the 'One Stop Shop' if you need further funds.

What if I cannot attend my appointment?

A cancellation fee may be charged if 24 hours notice is not given, please contact me ASAP if you are unable to attend a pre-booked appointment.
