What is a Chartered Physiotherapist?

The title "Physiotherapist" alone is not evidence of a formal qualification in Physiotherapy. A Chartered Physiotherapist is a specialised member of the health care team. We are recognised by the medical professions and the Department of Health. The title "Chartered Physiotherapist" and the initials MISCP indicate that a physiotherapist is a member of the professional regulating body, the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists. Chartered Physiotherapists have the high level of education, knowledge and experience needed to give a high quality and effective service to patients. When you attend a Chartered Physiotherapist, you can be sure of: A professional, scientific approach to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of your complaint; Seeing a therapist who has qualified with a University degree and who is committed to continuing education and research. Chartered Physiotherapists are recognised and covered by VHI, Quinn Healthcare, Vivas and other health insurance schemes.
