We are currently working on various projects, with an end goal of making AposTherapy® widely available within the NHS so that many more patients can benefit from this treatment within the public sector.
After a successful pilot in Bedfordshire for hip and knee osteoarthritis patients within the NHS, AposTherapy® is now available in Bedfordshire and Greenwich (via Circle Health), along with Mid-Essex (MECCG).
It is currently commissioned as an alternative option for patients that would otherwise likely progress to requiring joint replacement surgery and showing some great results. Patients are referred into their local triage service via the GP’s in the normal way. At this point, specialist clinicians will screen and refer appropriate patients for the therapy to be assessed by the physiotherapists trained in AposTherapy. If patients are suitable and likely to benefit from the therapy, they will be able to start their treatment programme the same day.
The outcomes of these projects are continually under review by both AposTherapy and the Provider to ensure it is meeting the high clinical expectations of the therapy.
