Physiotherapy not available on the NHS?

Is there a better time to consider an alternative approach to reducing the pain you are in?

Do you want to remain in pain until October at the earliest and beyond? If you rely on the community NHS physiotherapy or podiatry services you might not have a choice.

The Bowen Fascial Release Technique achieves great results for many clients. This could be the time to consider the Bowen Technique rather than wait for the physiotherapy department to reopen in October?

If you have aches and pains, joint pains, back pain, frozen shoulder, muscle pains, headaches or migraines, if the answer is Yes you should try the Bowen Fascial Release Technique.

Why is this so important in Bicester right now? Last week on Facebook a correspondent wrote “Bicester physio department at cottage hospital closes next week and won’t open again till end of October, while paper work is sorted with new company. It is not shutting for good and all staff are remaining. Until all paperwork is done they cannot practice.” Further posts indicate that appointments in October are already being cancelled and that they have been told they have to go back to their GP to be referred again and additionally no appointments can be made until the transfer to the new provider.

Speaking to the community hospital itself, they confirm the change of provider to Healthshare Ltd. A slightly different message from them, but the physiotherapy department is seeing pre-booked appointment until the penultimate week in September, then they will close for a week, and reopen on October 2. This will have a disruptive effect on the staff as they will have been transferred to the new provider under TUPE, which is a potentially distressing time for them.

It is clear that unless you have an appointment booked already in September, you will not get one until the beginning of October at the earliest.

If this temporary closure affects you and would like to be on your way to being pain free, you could be seen by a professional Bowen Therapist within days, and be well on your way to a potentially significant reduction in your pain levels, as well as being able to undertake the activities you love.
