As Healthcare in general remains open, FASIC is able to offer remote and face to face physiotherapy appointments.  However we are advised by our governing bodies to use a ‘virtual first’ approach, and limit our face to face contact where possible.  From 12 - 31 January 2021, while under protection lockdown restrictions we will be offering assessment appointments in 2 parts.

We have modified access to online bookings for face to face appointments temporarily to allow us to manage the volume and pattern of face to face consultations in the clinic.
