Physiotherapy is a science based approach to maintain and restore physical social well-being. The exercise of clinical judgement and interpretation of treatment modalities are at its core. Modalities include electrotherapy, hydrotherapy, cryotherapy, manipulative and mobilising techniques, deep tissue massage, and individually tailored exercise programmes. 

The Physiotherapy Department is staffed by professional and experienced clinical Chartered Physiotherapists. We work to Physiotherapy Chartered Society Standards supporting best practice and will strive to provide the best in patient care. 

The department contains 6 spacious treatment rooms and a large fully equipped gym. All physiotherapy patients have a treatment plan established on assessment by their physiotherapist, which is regularly reviewed during the course of physiotherapy treatment. 

We aim to see urgent referrals within 48 hours of referral and non urgent referrals within five working days. Referrals are accepted from Consultants and GP’s. Self paying patients may refer themselves for physiotherapy. Discharge reports are sent to the patient and their GP or Consultant when the patient has completed treatment. Packages of care can be provided for patients with long term rehabilitation requirements.
