About KCP

Kent Community Physio (KCP) is a clinically-led, small team of local Chartered Physiotherapists with decades of experience working in hospital and community settings.

We pride ourselves in delivering fast and responsive physiotherapy to adults either in their own homes or a residential setting including Residential and Nursing Homes.

KCP was founded in 2024 with the belief that everyone regardless of their personal circumstances has the right to timely rehabilitation that focuses on supporting recovery, improving quality of life and enabling independence.

All members of KCP are fully insured, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and hold enhanced DBS checks.

With decades of combined experience working in both the NHS and Private sectors KCPs team has extensive experience of both community and hospital settings. KCP physiotherapists are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Charted Society of Physiotherapists (CSP) and are passionate about ensuring that everyone has the right to access timely and reliable physiotherapy in an environment that is suitable to their needs.

What Makes KCP Different?

We love working with and seeing our patients achieve goals that are important to them. This can be as simple as being able to stand independently, feed their pet or access the local community. We take the time required to understand exactly what is important to our patients.

We work alongside other paid and unpaid carers to ensure that if you are receiving personal care needs that this is undertaken with an enablement focus, ensuring that you are an active part in your care.

At KCP we will regularly review your goals, we will only see you for as long as clinically indicated, and discuss your progress with you. We will change and adapt your treatment plan depending on your wishes. KCP is also proud to offer a free non-obligation follow-up phone call 1 week after you have been discharged from our service to ensure that you are maintaining or progressing with your goals or to help resolve any concerns you may have.

We have a range of KCP payment packages available for you to choose the flexibility that best suits you – please see Our Services page for more information.
