Whether you have been working in hospitals for years or a have recently started working in a health centre there is no question that you have worked hard to get where you are and to become a physiotherapist. Whatever your current situation you may decide that you want to explore new depths in your career and work independently.

There are a number of different working set ups that you could choose from to operate independently as a freelance physiotherapist. You could either:

  1. Work within a hospital or private practice
  2. Work in health care practices
  3. Work independently

Whatever set up you decide on, to go freelance you will need to register with the Health Professions Council (HPC) and become accredited by them.

There are many benefits to working freelance as a physiotherapist and below we have given you a few examples to get you started:

  • Flexible working hours
  • Working with various different clients at the same time
  • Being able to make your own decisions on the best way to treat your clients
  • Take home a much higher percentage of your wage than your counterparts because of your ability to claim expenses for tax relief

As a business owner you will be able to submit expenses for tax relief which allows you to take home a much larger percentage of your pay than an employee operating on a PAYE basis. Expenses which could include petrol costs, advertising expenses, professional courses / memberships, accountancy fees, etc.

The service that Arleys offers has been designed in such a way that we decide, together, how you would like us to help you run and manage your business. With Arleys being designed by contractors we realised that there wasn’t one service model that would cater to all of your needs; so we decided to adopt them all.
