West Suffolk Physio

Hello and Welcome to West Suffolk Physio! Read all about us and our journey so far…

Hello and welcome from WSP!

We’re delighted to announce the opening of our much anticipated brand new private physiotherapy practice! After many months, some long hours, and hard work (not to mention some sweat and tears) we are thrilled to open our doors to the general public. So please, come up and see us!

Our story so far…

So, what is this? A private practice set up through the NHS? It can seem a little confusing, but it’s actually quite simple. We are a close team of NHS physios who have been working together for many years at the West Suffolk Hospital Foundation Trust. For a long time, we had been providing physiotherapy services to local NHS patients. Following changes in NHS contracting however, we were no longer able to offer this service. Although this was a blow at the time, we were keen to keep our team together and continue offering high quality physiotherapy to the public. This led us to walk a different path.

Luckily, the Trust believed in us and were able to provide us with a golden opportunity to move forward and set up a private physiotherapy clinic.

We are passionate about supporting our NHS through arguably one of its toughest times. We are proud to say that all money made by West Suffolk Physio is invested directly back into the West Suffolk Hospital. This money will go towards providing and improving care to local patients.

Our Vision

We are focussed on promoting health and wellbeing at WSP. This means we want you to get the most from your visit to us. We don’t believe you should feel like a passive recipient when starting Physiotherapy. Instead, we are about working in partnership with you to get you the best possible outcome. Our ultimate aim is to put you back in control.

‘Control of what?’ you may ask. Well, this could mean anything from empowering you to make positive changes in how best to manage a long term condition, through to offering a physical check and some guidance ahead of an upcoming event. There are an array of conditions we can help you with. Our website will soon be up and running which you can visit for more information (www.westsuffolkphysio.co.uk) . In the meantime, should have any questions please call us on 01284 713721 or drop us a line at wsphysio@wsh.nhs.uk

Moving forwards

Although we are a private practice and a completely separate wing of the West Suffolk Hospital, we are proud to continue to work within the Trust’s vision to deliver the best quality and safest care to our community. We strongly believe in offering affordable, flexible and personalised care. We recognise the importance of offering people the time they require, at a time convenient to them in both a dignified and comfortable setting.

We are really excited to embark on this new adventure and look forward to sharing it with you. Please check our blog for regular updates, and get in touch if there any upcoming events or topics you would like to see posted or discussed.

We’re a friendly bunch, we look forward to meeting you and showing off our shiny new premises! So please feel free to pop in and come and see what we are all about.
