Why do ask patients to levy the full treatment cost?
Because someone else could have been treated during that appointment time. Many Physiotherapists operate with regular waiting lists and late cancellations mean doubly wasted time and patients enduring discomfort and pain unnecessarily.

Fees for non-insured patients (pay at each appointment)
Initial Assessment £45.00
