Thinking of private practise?
Over the past few years, more and more physiotherapists have chosen to open their own private practice.
Is this suited to you?
Do you have what it takes to make it on your own? You might be good at physiotherapy but it will take basic business skills and specific personal characteristics in order to make your private practice work.
What will you need?
Commitment is essential if you want to open your own business. You will need to be willing to work hard every single say and this means late nights and working on the weekends.
You will need to motivate yourself on a regular basis. There won’t be someone telling you what to do or when to do it and this means that it all needs to stem from you.
What things should I consider?
The location of your practice is very important. You will need to find out whether there are too many or too few physiotherapists in your area and whether or not your business will generate enough patients in order to be successful.
The necessary equipment that you need will depend on the patients that you will be treating and where they will be treated.
Fees will need to be considered. You will need to find out how much your competitors are charging in order to get a good idea about what you should charge.
Where are my patients going to come from?
Patients will be coming from 4 different sources:
- Those referred by GP's.
- Self referring patients.
- Those referred by health insurance companies.
- Referrals from others.
Want to get started?
Before you begin with the process of opening your own practice, you will need to make a few decisions concerning your options:
- Will you buy a practice that is already established? This is a good option if you want to start up with a bigger caseload. It will, however, cost you a lot more than building it from scratch.
- Will you set up a practice from scratch? If so, where will your premises be located? Will you work from home? Will you rent a room? Starting a practice from scratch takes a lot of work but the benefits make it more than worthwhile.
- Will you start up your private practice slowly, while still working full time? This is a great way to start up your practice if you don’t want to take the risk of leaving your full time position.
