How does it work?

All appointments are by home visit. I will travel to you whether it is in your own home, residential/care home, day centre or similar environment. This is of great benefit as i can assess your specific needs and problems within the environment you are in the most. I perform a comprehensive assessment and then formulate a treatment plan to help you improve your condition and achieve your goals. I treat a wide variety of conditions ranging from falls prevention, rehabilitation for the elderly or following illness or surgery, neurological and respiratory conditions and care home assessments.

What qualifications do you have?

North Notts Physiotherapy is ran solely by myself Dawn Taylor. I qualified from Sheffiled Hallam University with a BSc (Hons) in physiotherapy in 2009. I have worked extensively in the NHS and private settings. I am a registered physiotherapist, member of the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) with full DBS clearance. I have vast experience of working in a community physiotherapy service providing care directly into the homes of patients. I have gained specialist knowledge in assisting with discharges home from hospital, facilitating return home from care settings, rehabilitation following illness or operations, neurological and respiratory rehabilitation and much more.  I have seen at first hand the challenges and obstacles that some people face within the home and in the community, and how that can impact on daily life. I am passionate about what i do and i aim to provide advice and rehabilitation to improve the quality of life of all my patients.

Will Physiotherapy help?

Physiotherapy has been shown to be effective in numerous large scale studies however this question can only be fully answered following an comprehensive initial assessment to see what needs and problems you may have. Because there are many different aspects within physiotherapy i often find i can be effective in making a difference in some way. If you are unsure whether i may be able to help then please contact me and i can discuss this prior to booking an appointment. I am open and honest and if i don’t feel physiotherapy is the right option then i will say so and try and point you in the direction of other services that may be of help.

Do i need a referral from a doctor?

I don’t require a referral from a doctor so you can simply get in touch and arrange an appointment. I do often find doctors have recommended physiotherapy and i am more than happy to receive any information from your doctor or any other health professional. With your permission i can provide your doctor with written information about the assessments and treatments provided by myself.

How do i arrange an appointment?

Simply contact me by email at dawn@northnottsphysiotherapy.co.uk or by phone on 07307638930.

Can I rearrange or cancel an appointment?

I appreciate you may need to rearrange or cancel an appointment. All i ask is that you try and provide me with more than 24 hours notice. I can often be flexible and adjust appointment dates and times to suit your individual requirements.
