Physios so out of touch
PHYSIOTHERAPISTS have been BANNED from touching their patients!
Recuperative medics in Rushcliffe, Notts, have been told to teach people how to cure themselves instead.
Commissioning group Principia says it has swapped from being a “treatment” service to an “advice and guidance” service.
But the governing body has branded the move – which also sees patients directed to websites – as “barmy”.
Phil Gray, chief exec of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists, said: “They have invented a new form of physiotherapy that no one has heard of – do-not-touch physiotherapy.
“It is a completely barmy form of treating people which means that the only solution will be to go to the private sector and pay for themselves.”
