About AQP

Any qualified provider – primary neck and back pain

Since 2010 the Government has been committed to increasing patient choice in NHS funded services. One way the Government is committed to extending patient choice is by offering patients a choice of health care provider, as part of the any Qualified Provider (AQP) options.

For more information aobut AQP visit NHS choices >

The MCH physiotherapy team offer an AQP service for all musculoskeletal patients with primary back and neck pain. This means that when you are referred for physiotherapy,(usually by your GP, because of back or neck pain you can choose our team of specialist physiotherapists to treat you.


We aim to see patients with urgent needs within ten days and all patients within six weeks. We are unable to see you if you:

  • are under 16 years of age,
  • are not registered with a GP in Medway or west Kent,
  • present with the same condition within six months and there has been no significant change,
  • do not meet the referral criteria.
