For Physio First, this means that you can pay a £22 monthly subscription and receive all our member benefits on a rolling month-by-month basis. Including up-to-date marketplace information on bulletins, our Covid-19 FAQs and posts on our member-only forum (LinkedIn).
We are committed to listening to your suggestions, many of you have told us it would be useful to have a monthly payment option as it will support you to budget most effectively. This is a particularly attractive membership payment option for those private physiotherapists who are suffering financial hardship as a result of the Covid-19 crisis but want to continue to keep up to date with the latest information and guidance advice from Physio First.
Please read our Terms & Conditions about our subscription.
Do I have to sign a contract?
There is no contract with the PAYG membership. You simply receive the benefits of membership on a month-by-month basis. Private Physios join Physio First and stay members, we are confident that you will enjoy the benefits from joining our community and remain a member.
What is the difference between PAYG and annual membership?
Those who choose to pay for one year’s membership will make the one-off payment and receive access to member benefits including unrestricted access to the member resources online for the remainder of the membership year.
