The children’s physiotherapists provide services to children who have difficulties with gross motor skills including delayed development, balance and co-ordination. Children’s physiotherapy appointments will be at NGH, mainstream or special school or at a children’s centre.
We work on Paddington and Disney wards treating acute and chronic respiratory conditions, including children with Cystic Fibrosis, as well as mobilisation of emergency and elective orthopaedic injuries and some neuro-rehabilitation. We work on Gosset ward in the assessment and treatment of premature babies and are involved in the assessment of babies born with Brachial Plexus Palsy and talipes on the maternity wards.
We work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to provide services for children with Cystic Fibrosis, Down Syndrome, JIA, neuromuscular conditions and as part of the CDC assessments. There is a physiotherapy-led orthopaedic clinic for treatment of congenital foot and hip conditions and jointly-run orthotic clinics.
The service provides for children and young people up to the age of 19.
Referrals are accepted from healthcare professionals and school SENCOs via the referral management centre.
