The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists describes what a Chartered Physiotherapist is: “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 (3-4 year full-time course) and who is committed to continuing education and research.
Chartered Physiotherapists are recognised and covered by VHI, Laya, Aviva and other health insurance schemes.”
