How do I know if a physiotherapist is fully qualified?At Bedford Physiotherapy Centre physiotherapists are not employed unless they have produced valid registration documents from the Health and Care Professions Council.
This registration is renewed every two years and the Physiotherapy manager has copies of the originals within the department. All physiotherapists at Bedford Physiotherapy Centre are members of the Health and Care Professions Council and Chartered Society of Physiotherapists.
