No.1 quality MSK provider in the UK
Connect has grown from a single private clinic established in 1989 to being the largest provider of community musculoskeletal physiotherapy services in the UK, employing over 250 staff, with over 180 clinical experts in MSK and occupational physiotherapy.
We provide bespoke occupational services to companies and organisations, large and small. We’re also a trusted and longstanding provider of numerous community service contracts across the country for the NHS.
