Coronavirus - changes to this service
Our service remains open to referrals, however, we have adapted our working practices to ensure we safeguard those who are most vulnerable within our care, for example making more use of telephone and video calls for appointments and reducing face to face appointments. Our outpatient clinic has recently reopened and is mainly offering physiotherapy appointments.
All referrals will continue to be processed. We will make contact to discuss individual needs and whether these can be best met within our team, and by which therapists. When possible, we will provide written guidance and information on resources to assist with management of their condition whilst awaiting the start of direct intervention.
The support we offer may be conducted by phone or video conferencing, however we will offer a face to face visit if necessary following an appropriate risk assessment. An example may be a person who is at immediate risk of falls, has difficulty swallowing, a breakdown of carer support and prevention of hospital admission, or support on discharge from hospital with things like eating, drinking and swallowing.
If you have any queries regarding a referral then please do not hesitate to contact us on 0114 271 1237.
