It is most certainly the case for osteopaths in Central London and North London such as myself, that it’s becoming much more common place to be working alongside GP’s and other healthcare professionals to provide private treatment by way of referrals.
Bodies such as the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommend osteopathy as a source of manual therapy and treatment for lower back pain, while and the Department of Health has published specific guidelines that advocate osteopathy as an effective treatment for musculoskeletal problems in patients.
The NHS, GPs and consultants recognise the value that osteopathy can bring to people in pain, resulting in our services being referred by a number of doctors in and around London, who have been kind enough to also give us testimonials. Here are three such glowing testimonials…
“I have been a patient of Robin Kiashek and also referred many of my patients. The consensus of all of us is that he has been a committed, thoughtful and wise osteopath who has also brought in other disciplines and approaches to his work to achieve an even greater chance of benefit.”
Dr Michael Gormley, General Practitioner, The Basil Street Practice, London.
“Over the years I have referred a number of patients to Robin. I have always received very positive feedback. He has a holistic approach to treatment and is genuinely interested in helping his clients to gain a long term solution to their problems. He is very professional. His excellent communication skills form the basis of his clinical assessments. His treatments are skilful, thorough and effective. I would be happy to recommend Robin. The clinic facilities are of a high standard and are quiet and relaxing.”
Mr Ron Miller MS FRCS FRGS Consultant Urological Surgeon, St Johns & Elizabeth Hospital, London
“Robin Kiashek is my ‘go-to’ osteopath for my complex patients with neck and back problems. He combines excellent clinical care, effective treatment and a friendly approachable manner. He always communicates well with patients and the referring specialist. I would strongly recommend him to anyone in search of a first class osteopath.”
Dr Paul Jarman, Consultant Neurologist, The National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London
If your health insurance covers osteopathy, some insurance companies will require you to be referred by a doctor first before receiving osteopathic treatment. You can ask to be referred to a specific practitioner if you so desire.
