Experienced Paediatric Physiotherapists

NHS Treatment

Your child’s NHS entitlement should not be affected if you elect to provide private physiotherapy treatment. I have experienced working in the NHS and private sector and recognise that communication regarding the ‘shared’ patient is essential. If you are already seeing an NHS Physiotherapist then, with your consent, I will contact them to ensure that our approaches to your child’s physiotherapy are consistent and that you are not being given conflicting information. Sometimes you may see me more than the NHS physiotherapist and they may prefer me to take the lead for example showing programmes to nursery and school staff or letting them know that you have outgrown equipment etc. Other times they will take the lead and I will supplement the physiotherapy they provide.

If you are on a waiting list for physiotherapy then with your consent I will provide a written or verbal report so that the NHS Physiotherapists are fully informed of our progress when they initially assess your child. At this stage you may wish to withdraw from private physiotherapy treatment. If this is the case please do not feel reluctant or embarrassed, part of my role is to initiate physiotherapy at the earliest possible stage - a key benefit of choosing private treatment.
