Due to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the advice from the government and the World Health Organisation, we closed our clinic at the David Lloyd Club on Friday 20th March until further notice. We will be available for virtual consultations from Monday 30th March 2020. We will be able to maintain some continuity with your rehabilitation and continue to support you with advice on your recovery. Those of you who are now working at home, we can advise on workstation improvements and optimisation.
We look forward to reopening, when we are able, and to welcoming you back to our clinic. May we take this opportunity to thank you for the fantastic support and loyalty you have shown to us during this unprecedented time.
Please stay safe, and if you have any urgent questions please contact us at
With best wishes,
Rob, Hannah, Angelina and the Team at Osteopathy First

Due to the volume of people self isolating and working from home in the U.K. and around the world currently, we are now offering virtual consultations with some members of our team. This will involve a full case history, assessment of active movements, previous injuries, general health and other appropriate questionning and screening. We will discuss your symptoms, and the probable cause(s) together with offering a working diagnosis. We can then discuss suitable management, home workstation modification, home exercises, and specific things to avoid, plus make recommendations on orthotics, braces, and footwear. An appropriate exercise program and/or rehab protocol can be sent to you via email after your consultation.
Our Osteopaths and Physiotherapists work with AXA PPP, Aviva, WPA, Simply Health, Cigna, Standard Life and all other health insurers. Please contact our main reception team prior to your first consultation and treatment so that we may assist you in the claims procedure. If your health insurance is a 'cash-back' policy, just ask us for a receipt each time you visit us, we'll be happy to print or email one to you for each visit.
“I saw Hannah for a year for my EDS and she is absolutely magic. She is so lovely, and really took the time to understand my condition and needs. Thanks to her, I'm am so much better, and the insoles she got made for me have changed my life. The team at O1st are friendly and really helpful, especially when I had to rearrange appointments. I would 100% recommend them (and have) to everyone.”
“ I went to Mr Rob Hill with runners knee. This condition was impacting with my training significantly. Rob showed empathy towards a runner which most healthcare professionals would not. Rob diagnosed my condition and implemented a treatment programme involving custom made orthotics from Canada, rehabilitation exercises and massage.
I am now on schedule to get a Boston marathon qualifying time. If you are a runner with an injury who wants to carry on training see Rob Hill”
Dr. Sunil Sharma
“I have been seeing Rob Hill for at least the last 8 years for osteopathic treatment after surgery on my spine.. The treatment I receive is the best I have ever received. I travel over 40 miles to see him, and he is a true genius at what he does.”
"I have been treated by Hannah and her excellent team since 2011. Hannah is superb at quickly identifying the problem and treating it. There are no excessive treatments and check ups just to make money but quality care every time. I have long suffered with knee and shoulder pain and now know I have hyper mobility in my joints.
I have returned the clinic time after time, after doing something stupid and quickly return to sport. Can't recommend Hannah and her team enough!”
