What to expect

Pelvic health Physiotherapists offer specialist assessment and treatment for a wide range of pelvic health issues.
This may initially involve attending an individual assessment or a group education session where we can provide a great deal of information and advice to patients with similar symptoms. Following the group, you will be offered an individual asssement then ongoing treatment as needed.
All treatment is tailored specifically to each patients needs. We work in partnership with patients to set goals and establish a treatment plan to promote individual health and wellbeing.

Contact us

Our admin team can be reached on 01443 471515. We currently offer appointments in the Royal Glamorgan Hospital or Ysbyty Cwm Cynon in Mountain Ash.
If you would prefer your assessment and treatment to be carried out in Welsh, this is possible currently at Ysbyty Cwm Cynon Hospital, Mountain Ash. Please request this when phoning to book your appointment.

It is important that you let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend your agreed appointment. This allows us to offer the appointment slot to another patient and therefore keep our waiting lists as short as possible. Failing to attend without prior notice may result in being discharged from our service.

We welcome patient feedback and suggestions on how we can continue to improve the service we offer so please get in touch with any comments you may have or if you wish to speak to one of the pelvic health Physiotherapy team.
