Swansea Valley Physiotherapy Practice was established in 1992 to provide experienced, professional and effective treatment of musculo-skeletal problems.
If you pay for private physiotherapy treatment yourself or via your health insurance, it is really important you find the right physiotherapist who can help your health recover in the most effective way.
The Quality Assured Practitioner (QAP) and Quality Assured Clinic (QAC) schemes help you to choose the right level of care for your treatment. They allow you to ensure the quality of your physiotherapy care, as QAPs and QACs are awarded the kite mark based on reported patient outcomes – the results they achieve for their patients.
The QAC scheme is supported by Bupa. They only recognise private physiotherapy practices which demonstrate that they are collecting quality information. If your private physiotherapy clinic is a QAC and registered with the Bupa network, Bupa will use the QAC accreditation as evidence of the quality of the practice.
The practice is located at 23 High St., Pontardawe, Swansea, SA8 4HU. This facility provides expert assessment and treatment in the privacy of your own fully equipped, soundproofed treatment area.
