    Bristol, UK. I would add that it is worth doing market research in your preferred location to find out the demand for your services. This may not be quite so critical in the US where some of the costs to the patient can be defrayed to the insurance companies ( hence the need to appoint a billing contractor in the USA). In many other parts of the world, physical therapy costs may not always be allowed against health insurance so it is worth checking the demand and checking out the competition. Good luck
