The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic not only presents a direct risk to the health of people around the world, it is also likely to have a devastating far reaching socio-economic impact to many families and individuals too.
In response to the pandemic Southdowns Physiotherapy has taken the steps of stopping face to face appointments and replace them with telephone consultations to help minimise risk to vulnerable individuals at this time.
Telephone consultations for private patients will be charged at a reduced fee of £20 for Initial Consultations and £15 for follow ups. Southdowns Physiotherapy has chosen to donate funds raised from these consultations to the charity Shelter, in hope that it may go some way to supporting those affected in the coming months.
Shelter is a UK Charity that helps helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through advice, support and legal services.

A little history .....
The clinic itself was orginally formed in 1928, changing ownership and locations several times, before adopting the name Southdowns Physiotherapy in 1987.
Since 2016 Southdowns Physiotherapy has accepted NHS referrals. Referrals are sent to us via the Sussex MSK Partnership East who are the regional oraganisation in charge of musculoskeltsal conditions (This term covers problems, diseases and injuries relating to muscles, bones and joints).
In order to for a patient to be seen in one of our clinics under NHS funding, a referral must be arranged by their GP surgery.
GP referral required
- Initial Consultation and Treatment
Patients are able to book a private physiotherapy session without the need for a GP referral.
Bookings are often available for same day and next day appointments. During busier times availability can however vary. We aim to offer all private patients an appointment no longer than a week in advance.
Private appointments can be booked on a pay as you go, or insurance payment basis.
We are registered with most major insurance providers.
Contact your Health Insurance provider prior to your first appointment to check the procedure you will need to follow in order to ensure you are covered for any therapy you receive at the clinic.
