Charlbury Patient Participation Group: CPPG

Physiotherapy  Services

Physiotherapy and some aspects of podiatry have been provided by Healthshare for the last eighteen months. Healthshare are based at the Deer Park premises in Witney. They advise that all referrals from your GP are reviewed by an appropriate member of their clinical team with 48 hours - 90% of the time. They then arrange for the next stage of your care which could be:

An appointment with a physiotherapist or podiatrist for treatment

An appointment with an expert for assessment.  This might include an ultrasound, x-ray or MRI scan

A referral to another service if the problem is not something that can be treated by Healthshare.

What do you do if no one contacts you?  You can call the  MATT Physiotherapy and Podiatry Service on 01865 238 108 and speak to one of their advisors.

How long might this take? That depends on what you are referred for. The waiting times for different types of treatment options vary. There may be other appointments available at other locations if you are prepared to travel to another clinic for an appointment.
