The Physiotherapy service is also able to provide a referral system to other appropriate agencies for follow up treatment.

All patients are treated by qualified Physiotherapists that are registered, either on a ward, in the Clinical Decision Unit or in the main Physiotherapy Department located at the front of the Hospital near the Emergency Department.

In-Patient Physiotherapy Services – All In-patients that have a specific Physiotherapy need can be referred to the appropriate Physiotherapy team by their Consultant or Ward staff.

The In-patient Physiotherapy Team work closely with other health professionals in order to maintain continuity of patient care, as well as being involved in achieving a safe and timely discharge.

Patients that may require on-going therapy upon discharge can be referred to other community based services such as Hospital at Home, Intermediate care Assessment Team and Community Physiotherapy.
