About: Tavistock Hospital / Physiotherapy

(as the patient),

I was referred to the physio by my GP, he said I could choose between going to Tavistock or Derriford. I chose Tavistock because it is closer and more convenient for me. It took almost 5 weeks to hear from them, but when I did I quickly got an appointment. I was seen today by a lovely, attentive physiotherapist who was knowledgeable, approachable and very thorough. I feel very confident that I am on the right road to getting my pain sorted out. I could not fault the physiotherapist that I met at Tavistock Hospital.
