The NHS in Dorset is inviting people in Dorset to have a say on how physiotherapy services are offered and delivered in the county. The findings will be used to help improve services in the future.

Views are welcomed from anyone over the age of 16 who has either received services in the last 12 months, or is currently receiving physiotherapy for a musculoskeletal condition.

Local GP and Clinical Delivery Group Lead with Dorset CCG Dr Christian Verrinder said “It is common for all health services to be regularly reviewed to ensure they are able to continue to provide people with the best care that they need.

In order to help us achieve this, we are encouraging anyone who has either used local physiotherapy services or knows someone who has to complete the survey and let us know what’s good about services in Dorset and what could be done better. Equally we want to hear the experiences of those people who work in physiotherapy in the county who are able to provide us with some valuable insight.

All the feedback we receive will be looked at and considered, helping us shape the services that will be used local people in the future.”
