Midlands Veterinary Physiotherapy offers a mobile service primarily within a 30 mile radius from the A50/A38 interchange in Willington, Derbyshire. This typically covers most of Derbyshire, East Staffordshire, and certain parts of Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. However if you are further afield, please do still get in touch so that Hannah can discuss different options with you.
Appointments can usually be booked on week days from 8am to 4.30pm starting time with some later evening appointments up to 6.30pm and Saturdays available on request where required. Hannah tries to be as flexible as possible with her working hours so that she can usually accommodate most people's requirements. Her diary spaces are also carefully managed every week so that she can always endeavour to see your horse within as short a time as possible for any non-routine visits, but it is recommended that clients pre-book their routine appointments in advance wherever possible to help with this forward planning.
As an approximate guide to the length of appointments, it is recommended that you allow up to 90 minutes for your first session and then 60-75 minutes generally for any future appointments.
In accordance with the Veterinary Surgeon's Act 1966 and Exemptions Order 2015, the remedial treatment of a pre-existing condition by any practitioner requires prior consent from the veterinary surgeon who has first examined the animal. This means that in all cases where a horse is being seen for physiotherapy for the treatment of any clinical condition, injury, or for post-surgical rehabilitation, then Hannah will need to have a direct referral from your vet. Hannah has good working relationships with the equine practices in the area so please contact her to discuss how she can arrange this for you. Alternatively you can download and forward the form below to your vet for completion and then email this back to Hannah when making your appointment.
Pricing and payment
Appointments are charged by a sessional rate instead of by the time required or by the types of different treatments applied. This ensures that Hannah can take the time necessary for your horse without any pressure and it is also easy for you to plan ahead without unexpected additional costs.
Call out and examination only (if treatment not required) £35
For treatment programmes requiring kinesiotaping applications or frequent application of electrotherapies, please get in touch for more details.
Travel is free within a 30 mile radius of Willington, Derbyshire and is then charged at £0.75/mile (mileage calculations are based on a single trip from Willington via the quickest route as determined by Google maps).
