Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve shared some of our most frequently asked questions to help you out!

General Information

No, there is no need to see your GP before you come, just give us a call. However, we do recommend you contact your health insurance provider first, as they require a medical referral to authorise reimbursement of treatment.

No, we welcome David Lloyd members and non-members at all our clinic locations. Our treatment rooms are usually near the front of the building and easily accessible to all patients.

We are normally able to offer you an appointment within 24 hours. There are no waiting lists. We can offer you a choice of clinic locations nearest to you.

You physiotherapist will conduct a physical examination to make an accurate diagnosis. They may carry out some treatment such as soft tissue massage or joint mobilisation on your first visit to see how you respond.  You may also be given advice and exercises to do at home.

The initial assessment (IA) is normally 60 minutes, with follow up (FA) sessions lasting 30 minutes. 

All new customers require an initial assessment.

There is no pre-determined number of treatments for specific conditions, but following your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will discuss and agree on a treatment plan with you. They should be able to give you an approximate guide at this point.

Health Insurance

Yes, but It’s advisable to check with your insurance company before starting treatment with us as you will need an authorisation number from your insurance provider. We will send the invoice to your insurance company directly. Dependent upon the insurance company and your policy, you may be liable to pay an excess or a proportion of the treatment fee.
