Technology – Further Information on Zoom

As mentioned above, we use Zoom for online consultations and exercise classes. You’ll need to download and sign up for a Zoom account.

Once you’ve booked your online physio appointment with us, you’ll receive an email within 24 hours of your appointment time, which will contain the Zoom link. Click this link to start your appointment. It’s a good idea to join a few minutes early, to sort out any audio or connection issues – this means it doesn’t eat into your appointment time.

Note: There are alternative options available if you’d rather not sign-up for Zoom. Let us know your preferences and we’ll liaise with you the best way.
