Digital tools to help you

Connect Health’s PhysioNow is a digital self-assessment tool that helps you conveniently access the best care to manage your symptoms or injury. Developed using our clinical expertise, PhysioNow allows you to begin your care journey with us.

This quick and accessible assessment typically takes 15 minutes and can be completed on a smart phone or tablet. At the end of the assessment you will be advised on how soon you can expect to speak to a clinician. Please do not worry if you cannot give the full details of your symptoms, the digital assessment is designed so that the questions asked will direct you to the right clinician in an appropriate time frame.

GP Referrals – If you are referred by your GP or healthcare professional, your details will be registered on our system and you will receive a link via text message or email to complete your assessment, this will be available for you to complete for 5 working days. If you would prefer to speak with someone, please call us.
