What do I need to bring to my appointment?

Medical Information
If you are under the care of a Consultant at RJAH we will have access to clinic notes, details of you surgery, X-Rays and Scans (if applicable).  However, if you are not a patient of RJAH, please bring along any referral letters, scans and reports that you think might be relevant.

Suitable Clothing
Please wear or bring clothing that makes it easy for the therapist to assess the part of your body requiring treatment.  We have changing rooms, lockers and showers available on request.  Depending on your condition, you might be expected to undress down to your underwear, in order for a complete assessment to be carried out.  We have individual/ private cubicles should this be required.

How do I pay?

If you have private health insurance, please bring your policy number and authorisation code. Each insurance policy is different and we advise you to check that your treatment is covered, how many sessions you are allocated or if there is a limit to your treatment cost.
If you are self-funding you will be invoiced when you are discharged or after each batch of six sessions.

Cancelling an appointment

If you need to cancel your appointment we ask for 24 hours notice.
