I have been advised by a fellow runner that I should see a physio for issues I’ve been having with my Achilles. It’s quite expensive but do you think it will prove money well spent?

If you’ve been having issues with your Achilles for several weeks or more then I would certainly recommend seeing a physio, as without proper treatment and rehab Achilles injuries can become chronic and difficult to get rid of. Physiotherapy can be costly but a good physio should conduct a thorough assessment so that they can treat the cause of the issue, not just the symptom, provide manual treatment and prescribe a rehab programme. Physiotherapists can vary greatly in their level of experience and expertise so make sure that you find somebody who is registered with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and if possible is experienced in dealing with runners.
