Our Ethos

At K.M. Woods Physiotherapy, we are proud to provide a highly professional, patient centred service to all of our patients. It is this ethos which has sustained our company over the past 30 years, enabling us to progress to become the physiotherapy company of choice for those living in Glasgow’s West End, & the city’s surrounding areas.

K.M. Woods Physiotherapy surpasses all others with regard to the flexibility we offer with regard to appointment times and locations. Alongside our main Glasgow West End practice at 15 Royal Crescent, we also offer clinics at 4 satellite clinics – Clarkston (G76), Mosspark (G52), Newton Mearns (G77), and Kirkintilloch (G66). Between our 5 clinical sites, not only do we offer daytime appointments, but also appointments over 3 evenings and also Saturday mornings. We feel such service provision enables our patients to attend at their convenience, fitting their physiotherapy appointments around their lifestyle.

kmwoods ethos 300x203 Our Ethos

Every physiotherapist at K.M. Woods Physiotherapy is continually committed to providing research based, up-to-date assessment and treatment techniques, to ensure the desired outcomes for you, the patient. We seek to avoid promoting a type of care provision based on a mindset “this is how we have always done things”, or “let’s hope and see”. For the paying customer, this level of care is substandard and not something we could be proud of. Instead, our belief in only employing highly motivated, highly qualified staff ensures that each and every time a patient attends our clinics, their experience is worthwhile and beneficial.

Empowering the patient is another cornerstone of how we at K.M. Woods Physiotherapy view our responsibility to each individual who attends our clinics. We strive to provide each patient with knowledge, advice, and self-help exercises to undertake alongside their clinical treatments. Such an approach will not only achieve symptom improvements more quickly, but also ensure the patient feels in control of their own condition, and can ultimately maintain improvements after treatment has been completed. We do not seek to create a patient dependency on their physiotherapist, when self help is essentially the most sustainable model of care long term.

We believe in continually evolving our company and the services it provides, to primarily meet the needs of our patients and the wider community as a whole. Over recent years, clinic location & opening times have been adjusted to satisfy the patient demand, as have many minor details – text reminders of appointment times, e-mailed copies of home exercise programmes, a willingness to complete G.P. letters at short notice at the patient’s request, and providing the patient with direct access to the purchase equipment they will require to enhance their recovery, and a willingness to complete G.P. letters at short notice at the patient’s request.
