Telephone access to expert physiotherapy services without the need to see your GP first.
As a PHC member with private healthcare cover you don’t need to put up with aches and pains. Working Body provides direct access to qualified physiotherapists without the need to see a GP first.
The Working Body team will assess your condition and provide expert guidance on next steps.
This could include a range of options such as:
They’ll provide clinical advice on things you can do to get better – from personalised exercise programmes, with videos and step by step guidance, to advice on easing the pain. They’ll also provide hints and tips to help you avoid a recurrence without the need of seeing someone face to face.
If a course of physiotherapy, osteopathy or chiropractic treatment is what’s needed, they’ll make the arrangements for you to see someone who’s a convenient distance from work or home.
If imaging is deemed clinically appropriate, our Advanced Physiotherapists can organise and make the necessary arrangements for you.
Some conditions might need a visit to a specialist. They’ll arrange and book an appointment for you to see an appropriate person at a time and place that fits around everything you’ve got going on at work.
Support doesn’t end here. They’ll support you during recovery, with advice on preventing conditions returning and managing them if they do flare-up again.
Don’t worry if you have a physiotherapist who has looked after you in the past. You can still see them as long as the treatment is eligible, and they are recognised by us.
*Calls are recorded and/or monitored for quality assurance, training and as a record of your conversation
