Antonia’s and Lisa’s Accreditation from Physio First.
Antonia and Lisa have both gained quality assured practitioner, QAP, status, from Physio First for 2019/ 2020. A Physio First QAP is a private physiotherapist who has demonstrated that the quality of their treatment and patient outcomes are up to a high standard.
In order to gain this status Antonia and Lisa have participated in a national audit run through Physio First and Brighton University called the Physio First Data for Impact study. This project has been commissioned by Physio First, the Organisation of Chartered Physiotherapists in Private Practice, to enable private practitioners to fully understand and quantify the nature, frequency and outcomes of treatments provided. The data is collected by the University of Brighton who have the objective means of measuring and defining quality using a validated, standardised data collection research tool that has received national and international acclaim. Once collected, it is all independently analysed before a report on Physio First’s national data bank is published.
Also, as a clinic we gained quality assured clinic status (QAC) in May 2019. This was achieved following all physiotherapy staff submitting enough patient outcome data using the Data for Impact tool and achieving quality standards across the whole clinic.
