£130k bank deal seals physiotherapy growth
A PHYSIOTHERAPIST has seen his practice grow thanks to bank funding.
John Griffiths, who set up his physiotherapy practice 20 years ago in Macclesfield, will now move to a larger premises in Prestbury.
It will also mean the creation of two new positions – a part time receptionist and an additional physiotherapist.
The move to the former Co-op building on New Road has been made possible thanks to a £130,000 funding package provided by Royal Bank of Scotland.
The latest premises allows John to increase his treatment rooms from three to five, along with additional services that will complement his physiotherapy such as podiatry, reflexology, hypnotherapy, counselling, osteopathy and pilates.
John will rent out his treatment rooms to a number of healthcare professionals. Five members of staff are currently employed.
A complete refurbishment took place to renovate the building and transform it into a place that is modern, relaxing and professional.
In addition, it is now a disabled friendly business as it operates over the ground floor level and has designated parking spaces at the rear of the building.
John’s aim is to increase his annual turnover to achieve a figure of £260,000 in the next financial year. This equates to a 10pc increase which he hopes to repeat year on year.
John, who is co-director of John Griffiths Physiotherapy, said: “This is a huge step to take but one we are more than ready for.
“This expansion allows us to provide more patient availability from 7am-8.30pm five days a week, plus a Saturday clinic for those that need accommodating.
“The team is growing fast too and we are delighted about introducing our newest team members, who I have no doubt will settle in and make a real difference.
“The plan was always to open up a wider range of healthcare services on offer and now we have the space to do this we have become a one-stop shop for our customer’s healthcare needs. I’m sure these will be well received.”
Bev Berzins, business relationship manager at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “We’ve worked with John for a long time and so are pleased we could support him in securing suitable premises that will allow him to grow further and expand his services.”
