£130k bank deal seals phys­io­ther­apy growth

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS -

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.”
