Unfortunately it looks like I am not going to get an offer for a physiotherapy undergraduate course form any of my chosen universities this year. I still want to do physiotherapy long term but I would prefer not to wait around an extra year to start studying. Is there any other courses that anyone would recommend that would have a good carry over to physiotherapy, which possibly I could study for a year and change over to physiotherapy in 2017? Or would it be more beneficial to try and get a physiotherapy assistant job in the NHS?

You cannot do a course in another subject and then switch to physio, so rule that out.
I would probably say your best bet is getting a physio rehab job for a year or two, but this doesn't guarantee you will get on a course. What is the reason that you didn't get into the courses this year around? Was it your interview, experience, application form etc etc? Work on that as a first preference.
Also, something to bear in mind is that the NHS bursary scheme is coming to an end in August of next year which will make physio considerably more expensive to study. As per advice on the other thread, I would strongly suggest you don't run up 30k of debt just doing a 3 year degree you don't want to do. The Msc entry for physio is more competitive than the Bsc from all accounts and certainly isn't an easy route into the profession - i.e. there will be 1001 other people like you who have a relevant degree all fighting over 10 places...*
