Finding the right practitioner for you
Most of the practitioners listed on our Directory offer their services to you privately. Often performers registered as clients of BAPAM can obtain reduced cost appointments (call us on 020 7404 8444 to register - it's free and takes about 5 minutes).
If you do choose to use any of these practitioners you need to be sure your money is well spent, on a service that is appropriate for your needs and circumstances.
- If you want advice about diagnosis and how to manage and improve work-related health problems, make an appointment with your own GP or a BAPAM clinician.
- Every practitioner in the Directory has submitted an application form to the BAPAM Medical Committee. They are registered with an appropriate professional body and have indemnity insurance. However, your use of practitioners on the Directory is at your own discretion and risk. We are grateful for any feedback about practitioners you have seen. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to contact us.
- Online research: browse to the practitioner's website and search for additional information.
- Ask for feedback: ask around to see if any colleagues have had experience of the practitioner in question; do you think you would get on with them?
- Try and find out what you are letting yourself in for: ask how long the practitioner thinks it might take to get you on the road to recovery. Always check the fees you are likely to incur, including additional fees for examinations etc.
