Our services

Neurosciences physiotherapy team

What we do     

We provide Physiotherapy advice and treatment for people, aged 16 and over, with any neurological condition (other than stroke patients, who are seen by another specialist physiotherapy team). 

Patients are individually assessed and a problem list, specific treatment programme (including advice on managing their condition, if appropriate) and joint goals are devised. 

Other services available in the Neurosciences Physiotherapy team are: functional electrical stimulation, provision of mobility equipment,  hydrotherapy and a Parkinson’s disease exercise group.

Within the team there is a transitional physiotherapist who supports young people (16 – 25 years old) moving from children’s to adult services and young people returning to the area after College or University, (see further information under Transition Physiotherapy).

Following an episode of treatment the GP, consultant and referrer (if different) will be sent a letter with details of assessment, treatment and outcomes.

Referrals are categorised into urgent or routine.

For 1 year following discharge from the Neurosciences Physiotherapy Department, patients are able to self refer.

Royal College of Nursing members at our Trust are taking part in strike action Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February from 7.00am to 8.00pm. This will impact services at our hospitals.

If you are due to attend an appointment and we haven't already contacted you, please come as planned.

On days where there is strike action, patients should only call 999 if it is a medical or mental health emergency (when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk).
