College Physiotherapy at Newington
College Physiotherapy would like to welcome everybody back for another school year, especially the new students, families and staff joining Newington College.
We would like to extend a special welcome to our new Headmaster, Michael Parker.
With the resumption of the Summer Sport season, it is important to remember to hydrate, sleep and eat well, but also to look after any new or ongoing injury issues you may have.
The on-site physiotherapy team are committed and professional in their approach and more than happy to assist you to return to your best.
Students, staff, Old Boys and immediate family of current students are welcome to attend the clinic. See our Spaces page for fees.
Where students are concerned, we work closely with coaches, the Nurse and the Strength and Conditioning staff at the College to ensure that boys are well looked after and performing at their best.
New in 2019
We are now able to process payments with a Newington Student Card! Simply top up your card through Spaces and ensure you have it with you for your appointment – this can still be used in conjunction with Private Health Care Cards, as per usual, to subsidise consultations (dependent on your level of cover). Please note that sometimes it may take time for your funds to be ready to use so you may want to top up ahead of time.
On-site hours for 2019
For more information or to book an appointment, check out the College Physiotherapy Space or email any enquiries you might have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
