Leading independent physiotherapy provider, Ascenti, and the UK’s largest independent healthcare management app, myGP, have launched a partnership that brings Ascenti onto the new myGP Healthcare Marketplace.
myGP users can browse a diverse range of healthcare services including physiotherapy, where Ascenti will be featured as a preferred provider. They can then book an appointment with Ascenti in just a few clicks of a button, transitioning seamlessly from the myGP app to Ascenti’s online booking platform.
Members will have the option of booking a face-to-face appointment in one of 300 nationwide Ascenti clinics, or an online appointment as part of Ascenti’s award-winning virtual physiotherapy service. These virtual consultations are highly convenient and provide speedy access to an expert physiotherapist, with same-day appointments usually available.
All myGP customers who book with Ascenti will be offered access to the free Ascenti Physio app that includes bespoke rehabilitation programmes, guided exercise videos, self-management support and reminders to complete exercises.
Stephanie Dobrikova, CEO at Ascenti, commented: “We are delighted to launch this partnership with myGP and help improve ease of access to healthcare for their service-users.
