  • Seeking immediate or urgent advice/ treatment?

    We are a Primary Care Musculoskeletal Outpatients Service and are therefore not equipped to deal with emergency/ urgent medical care.

    If you are experiencing significant Musculoskeletal pain, please contact your GP to discuss options for pain relief. Our Physiotherapists cannot provide prescriptions for medication.

    If you need urgent medical help, use the regular NHS 111 online service.

    The 111 online service asks questions about your symptoms to help you get the help you need.

    Call 111 if you need urgent help for a child under 5 or cannot get help online.

    For life-threatening emergencies, call 999 for an ambulance.

  • How my information is stored?

    Vita Health Group work together with health professionals such as your GP or Consultant.

You are able to opt out of us sharing your information. The Government has emphasised the importance of security and confidentiality in relation to personal information and has strengthened the legislation and guidance in this area, in particular through the Data Protection Act 1998. More information on how we manage your information is available here. You have the rights to access your clinical notes.

  • When are you open?

    • Authorisation code
    • What your policy excess is

     

    We will deal with the insurance company directly on your behalf.

  • What do I wear?

    Please wear suitable clothing that allows the physiotherapist to effectively examine your injury (the body part to be treated needs to be accessible). Shorts, vest top or other similar attire generally work well in the clinic.

  • What should I expect to happen at the assessment?

    The physiotherapist will take a detailed history and then do an examination using a number of recognised tests to try to establish the nature of your problem. They will then begin treatment with you or advise you on the best course of action. This will often include a series of exercises or other self-management advice to help you recover. It is important that you follow this advice because our experience tells us that the patients who follow their plans generally respond better to treatment.  Read more about our Consent to Treatment policies below.

  • Consent To Treatment
