Physiotherapy Services

Physiotherapists help restore movement, function and mobility to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by other disability. 


Physiotherapists are governed by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.  This means that we work to the highest standards and our treatments are based on the latest evidence.


How will physiotherapy be involved in your care?

Within the hospital, physiotherapists will conduct individual assessments with you and find out about your normal mobility, day to day activities, strength, balance and any other relevant information.  We set joint goals with you to work towards during your admission.

Physiotherapists will work with you to improve your mobility through the provision of walking aids and strength and balance exercises to help you return to a functional level to enable you to work towards your goals and return home safely if possible.


Physiotherapists may also be involved in your care if you have a respiratory condition and have a chest infection whist in hospital. We will teach you breathing exercises and advise on methods to help clear your chest.


Physiotherapists are based both within the hospital and in the community. We work closely with occupational therapists, doctors, nurses, social workers, as well as speech and language therapists and nutrition and dietetics to ensure all round care and that patients are safely discharged from hospital.


Where appropriate we refer on to other services to provide physiotherapy out of hospital. This could be in your home or in a community rehabilitation unit dependent on your needs.


Any questions just ask your ward physiotherapist.
