Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan

Your GP can provide you with 5 EPC sessions if you have a chronic condition that would be best managed with allied health care, including physiotherapy. With an EPC Plan you could see our physios for 5 sessions, or could even divide those 5 sessions among our other allied health professions here at the Southwest Wellness Centre, including Podiatry, Dietetics and Exercise Physiology. Here at Difference Physiotherapy, under an EPC plan, we do not charge any extra fees for your appointment, providing you with that ease of mind that will allow you to focus more on your treatment and management.
