An extended assessment is a more comprehensive and in-depth assessment of a patient’s problem by one of our Chartered and State Registered Physiotherapists.
The assessments include more objective measures, a more comprehensive report (including fitness for normal, and modified duties) with insights into the patient’s current status, future status and treatment pathways.
Patients who have extended assessments are scrutinised via our clinical scrutiny department:
Every report is read and checked by one of our senior clinicians to assess suitability and appropriateness. Any discrepancies and/or questions are then asked back to the assessing therapist for comment/clarification. Jargon/abbreviations/medical terms are explained.
Our scrutiny therapists offer you advice on how to proceed (with the management of the patient). Note, this is advice only the final decision is always yours.
Physio Med has a national network of 780 Physiotherapy clinics with handpicked Chartered and State Registered Physiotherapists specialising in manual therapy.
Our large network means patients can access assessments and treatments within 30 mins traveling distance, making the service accessible for all regardless of their location.
These reports often require further scrutiny questions, and this can extend the time.
