Patient Expectations

In order to get the best out of your treatment, we ask our patients to do the following: 

  • Adhere to prescribed exercise regime
  • Complete necessary charts & forms
  • Adhere to attendance policy (see below)
  • Complete a full course of treatment
  • Communicate any issues or concerns regarding your treatment with your Physiotherapist

Attendance / Discharge Policy

In-order to keep appointment waiting lists as short as possible, Cardiff & Vale UHB’s Patient Access Policy states that:

  • If you do not attend your appointment you must contact the department on the same day to avoid being discharged.
  • If you cancel two appointments or do not re-book within a month of cancelling, you will be discharged.

This policy applies to individual and class treatment sessions.

If you have any questions regarding this attendance protocol then please speak to a member of staff who will be happy to discuss it with you.
