WHAT TO EXPECT AT
YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
You do not need a referral to see a physiotherapist
After speaking with you over the phone about your concerns, we will book you an assessment that may take up to an hour (45 minutes for musculoskeletal assessment and 60 minutes for womens health assessment)..
The assessment will involve
**You may be offered an internal examination as part of the women's health assessment. This is an important part of your examination and is necessary in identifying the tone, strength and control of your pelvic floor muscles. Your consent will always be sought prior to any internal examination or treatment.
Please be assured that your modesty will be maintained at all times and any information you provide will be kept highly confidential.
You are welcome to bring a friend or family member to the consultation if you would like to. You will also be offered a chaperone if you are needing an internal assessment - the chaperone will need to be a member of the team who will have been trained in the correct procedure for an internal assement. Should you have any concerns - please ask.
