Ascenti is partnering with the business following a period of significant growth.

more closely together to explore opportunities to link clinical expertise and delivery models.

Stephanie Dobrikova, CEO of Ascenti, said: “I’m delighted to welcome the Six Physio team to the Ascenti group. Six Physio has built an exceptional reputation in private physiotherapy through their strong presence across London. We are thrilled to now be partnering with Six to deliver new growth while continuing to drive innovation in physiotherapy, as part of our mission to deliver the very best care to a rapidly growing patient base across the country.”

great opportunity for Six Physio to join forces with the power and might of Ascenti. I’ve always
believed that what is best for the patient is to have a motivated, clinically astute and eager
team behind them. This deal ticks all the boxes and I can’t wait to expand and up our MSK
