The team at LA Physio are excited to announce the opening of our refurbished clinic on Monday 6th July.

Things will look and operate slightly differently – we have had a revamp, making some more space for treatment, we think it looks great – and hope you do too.

We will be operating a virtual first approach in line with the current industry guidance – this means we will have a telephone discussion with you to assess your requirement for a face to face appointment.

If face to face treatment is considered necessary we will provide you with more information about your appointment.

We will continue to offer an online/Zoom appointments for those who remain shielding or would simply prefer to continue treatment at home.

Please get in touch for an appointment, call 0141 258 2424, or email info@laphysiotherapy.co.uk

Patient and staff safety is of upmost importance to us and we thank you for your continued support and understanding as we establish our ‘new normal’

Kind regards

Lorne, Linda, Louise and Ailsa.
