    Privacy Notice: We take your privacy very seriously and will take all necessary steps to protect your data and sensitive information. We comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 and all relevant medical confidentiality guidelines. Your confidential medical information will only be disclosed to those involved with your treatment. Further details can be found on our website.

    Assessment: Your assessment will be carried out by a qualified and experienced Physiotherapist who will explain the process to you. During the assessment, the Physiotherapist will ask relevant questions about your injury and symptoms. There will also be a physical assessment, which may include various tests including hands-on palpation. To ensure an accurate assessment, it may also be necessary to remove certain of articles of clothing. Sometimes you may experience discomfort during the examination, and this should be reported to your Physiotherapist. You will not be asked to perform any task which is not relevant to your injury/condition. It is not unusual to experience some mild aggravation of symptoms after assessment, due to the need to try to reproduce your symptoms so that the Physiotherapist can form a valid clinical impression and formulate a treatment plan.

    Treatment (If applicable): Following your assessment, your Physiotherapist will discuss a treatment plan and expected outcomes with you. Treatment may include self-management strategies and exercises for you to do at home. Other physical treatments may or may not make up part of your treatment, as deemed appropriate by your Physiotherapist. It is not unusual to experience discomfort or, with some treatments, superficial bruising afterward. You may be asked to sign an additional form for certain treatments, stating that the Physiotherapist has explained the treatment and cleared any health-related risks with you.

    Clinical Audit: To ensure that the highest possible standards of patient and clinical care are being delivered, Peebles Physiotherapy Ltd performs periodic clinical audits to ensure compliance with our strict record-keeping protocols. By signing this form you are acknowledging that your notes may be randomly selected as part of the audit quality review process. Your notes will not be copied, removed or used for any other purpose.

    Please ask your Physiotherapist if you have any questions about your assessment or treatment.
