Before your appointment

Please wear loose, comfortable clothes to your appointment.

Please bring a list of any:

  • medicines you take
  • letters from other health professionals about your condition
  • questions

During your appointment

At your appointment you'll meet a physiotherapist who will:

  • ask you questions about your condition
  • examine your condition
  • give you a diagnosis
  • work with you to decide on the best physiotherapy treatment

Let us know when you arrive if you prefer to see a male or female physiotherapist.

We're a teaching hospital and sometimes students will be in the clinic to learn. Please let reception know when you arrive if you prefer not to have them at your appointment. This will not affect your care.

After your appointment

We may offer to send you an individual exercise plan using an application for your phone, tablet or web browser. You need an email address to access the application. We can also give you printouts of exercises.

Patient initiated follow-up (PIFU)

If it's available for you, we'll ask if you want to be added to our list for patient initiated follow up (PIFU) appointments.

This allows you to decide if you need to see us again after you've been discharged from our service.

If you're on our PIFU appointment list, then please contact us. You do not need to see your GP first.

This is only available for a short period of time after your first appointment.
