Physio First was formed in 1952 to represent the interests of self-employed private physiotherapists – something we still do today.

Physio First was originally formed as the Organisation of Chartered Physiotherapists in Private Practice (OCPPP), later becoming Physio First. The continuous developments in the NHS and the private healthcare market have always presented a number of challenges for our members and, as a result, Physio First has grown and adapted to meet the needs of our members in today’s fast changing and often challenging healthcare marketplace.

We benefit from professional management and support and pride ourselves on being an extremely functional organisation that is run by its members.
