Domiciliary physiotherapy services in London, UK
I'm a 33-year-old male with haemophilia A and osteoarthritis of the right knee. The knee has been locked at about 90 degrees for 6+ months, and remains painful. My left ankle was fused 7 months ago but hasn't had its rehab because of the knee problem I just mentioned. I'll be having a total knee replacement surgery for the right knee in February or March. I want to do whatever I can ahead of that surgery to get the best outcome possible. I live in NW10, London. Could you please point me to some domiciliary physiotherapy services that I could use?
Welcome to our community and I see you have posted before.
I understand that you are waiting for knee replacement surgery by March and wanted to know more about physiotherapy. I have attached a link from our website:

All the best.1
I think it's great that you're thinking ahead and trying to do all you can ahead of surgery to ensure a good outcome. I've had 3 knee replacements (over 43 years) and all have been very successful. I found the key was never to rush progress but to be very conscientious and regular with the exercises.
In answer to your question - I assume we're talking about a private physio as I've not heard of the NHS doing domiciliary visits (though they might). Here is where you can check out credentials https://www.csp.org.uk/public-patient/find-physiotherapist/find-physio . In your case I'd be very careful to do this as I'd guess that, with your ànkle ànd with haemophilia, it would be easy to inflict damage.
I do wish you all the best.1
You could try to see if your local health authority uses the NHS Anywhere service. I live in the west of Scotland and I'm just coming to the end of my second 12 week online physio course. In my case I have one to one sessions with an NHS Rheumatology Physiotherapist. It's a bit like a zoom call - I think it's a great service.1
