Your appointment

 

On arrival information

When you arrive at the centre, please go to reception. Reception will then ask you for a few details so they can give you a leisure card. Once you have this leisure card, you can then sign in at reception with your card each time you attend your appointment. They will then ask you to wait in reception until a member of the Connect team come and collect you to start your rehabilitation session. If you are late, please ask the reception staff to guide you through to the gym. There are lockers in the reception area and changing rooms to lock your belongings away. These work with a £1 coin or trolley key. Changing rooms are to the left of the reception. Please be ready to exercise in time for your appointment in order to help things run smoothly.

Depending on your condition, your first appointment may be a scheduled telephone consultation with a physiotherapist or a face to face appointment. At the initial appointment you will be asked questions regarding your symptoms, activities, work, previous medical history etc.

If this is over the phone you may then be booked to see a physiotherapist, an Advanced Practitioner Physiotherapist (APP), a clinician with specialist orthopaedic or pain expertise or a GP with Special Interest (GPwSI).  This is to complete the assessment and decide on the best management plan for you.

Your treatment plan will be discussed with you and may include a variety of  treatment options, to help you to return to your usual activities. Your treatment plan will also include advice and specific exercises to help you to self-manage your condition.

Please bring to the appointment any recent prescriptions and/or a list of current medications.
