About the survey

Last chance to tell us about your experience of physiotherapy in our priorities survey: closes 31 July.


What are we doing?

Anyone with an injury, illness, condition or disability should have the chance to achieve the best possible outcome and quality of life.

The James Lind Alliance is helping us carry out a Priority Setting Partnership. This is a way of working with researchers and the public to decide the priorities for physiotherapy research.

We’d like anyone with experience of physiotherapy in the UK to tell us what questions need answering. That way we can make sure research focusses on the most urgent needs of patients and promotes health and well being.

What you need to do

Think about your experiences and understanding of physiotherapy and how it is delivered - and then tell us your thoughts.

We want questions that, if researched, could make a real difference to people receiving physiotherapy. They can be about any type of physiotherapy service for any injury, illness, condition or disability, for people of any age.

We will ask questions about four different aspects of physiotherapy:

  • physiotherapy to help people recover
  • physiotherapy to help people to manage their condition(s) themselves
  • physiotherapy to help people improve their health and prevent disease and injury
  • how physiotherapy services are accessed and delivered.

Please note that if you'd rather complete a written form, use the document link at the foot of this page. English and Welsh language versions are now both available.

What will happen with your questions?

Your questions will be included in a list of research ideas. (Unless, of course, they’ve already been answered.)

Then we’ll ask patients, carers and physiotherapists to choose which ones are the most important.

What will happen with your information?

We’ll publish your questions anonymously on our websites. They may also be featured in reports and research papers. Your name or your organisation’s name won’t be published and no one will be able to identify you: your personal details will remain confidential.
