We are pleased to say that the clinic is now open again for face to face consultations where appropriate.
We are still offering video consultations whenever this is the best option.
At The Physio Stop, the health and safety of our patients has always been a priority and we have been working hard to ensure that we have all the necessary procedures and equipment in place to ensure all our staff and patients stay safe and well.
Although the Scottish Government has indicated that lockdown measures are slowly changing, this does not mean we will be working as ‘normal’. You will notice many changes when you arrive at the clinic.
We have put together a summary of what you can expect.

- When you phone to book an appointment, we will take all your details as normal including an email address. If you book online, we will call you after we receive the booking.
- We will ask you some screening questions to ensure that it is safe for you to attend the clinic, these are based on the government guidelines.
- We will discuss with you whether a face to face appointment or a virtual consultation is best.
