Physiotherapy Outpatient Wait Times

Due to increased pressures on the NHS locally, we would encourage patients to use the advice, information and exercises available on this website to help them with their condition before seeking a referral to the physiotherapy service at this time.

The Physiotherapy Outpatient departments approximate wait times for general musculoskeletal routine cases are as follows:

  • North Bristol Trust – 26 weeks
  • University Hospital Bristol and Weston (Bristol site) – 58 weeks
  • University Hospital Bristol and Weston (Weston site) – 71 weeks
  • Sirona care and health (for clinic locations click here)– 25 weeks

This does not include waiting times for patients referred to specialist services.

Referrals are prioritised according to need. Those requiring urgent assessments will be seen within 2 weeks.
