Private physiotherapy information for patients



Opening hours

Monday to Friday, 8am-7pm

How to make an appointment

To make an appointment, please contact us by phone or email on the contact details above. If you leave a voicemail please remember to leave your contact name and number and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

  • Do I need to see my doctor first?

    Initially you may consult a chartered physiotherapist without a doctor's referral, but contact between your doctor and physiotherapist is in your best interest.

    Chartered physiotherapists work under strict rules of professional conduct and have established links with other members of the health care team.

    If you are unsure whether physiotherapy is appropriate for you, please telephone the clinic to informally discuss your needs.
