Did somebody say 'Physio SOS'?
I have been looking at the best way to keep the services I provide accessible to both those who are most vulnerable and those who need and would like it.
So I am now offering phone consultations to advise people on physiotherapy related issues, I aim to use video calls to discuss your problems and guide you through exercises and stretches you can do at home to keep yourself moving and as pain free as possible.
I'm fully aware many of my regular clients will struggle without physiotherapy treatment and guidance over a sustained period. By offering the telephone/video service, the aim is to help ease that burden and offer my support and time.
If you would like to book a phone consultation/appointment please either contact me directly or use the online booking link here > BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

Remote consultations include video consultations (e.g. Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp, or other commercial products), telephone consultation, email and mobile messaging. Setting up remote consultation options normally requires time, planning and incremental introduction.
However, in these extenuating circumstances the CSP endorses a more rapid approach to implementation to minimise risks of exposure to COVID-19 to patients, the public and healthcare staff.
When are remote consultations appropriate?
A remote consultation may be appropriate:
For clinicians who are self-isolating
For patients with symptoms of or confirmed COVID-19 infection
For patients who are at high risk of COVID-19 infection
For patients who are worried about attending appointments or having visitors, or with heightened anxiety (video consultation may be more reassuring than a phone call).
