Since 2001 Physio Advice Line (previously Physio Direct) has been offered to patients in Huntingdon, Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire. Nationally we were one of the first NHS Physiotherapy services to offer this direct access into our service with no GP referral needed.
Our well established service has successfully assessed and supported thousands of people over the telephone with 55% not requiring a face to face appointment at all. This direct and faster access to an experienced physiotherapist enables people to receive early support and intervention therefore reducing the likelihood of the condition becoming worse, which can often affect people’s ability to work and increased risk of entering into a cycle of restricted movement and pain.
