What we do

There a 3 core areas to our provision:
The team provides physiotherapy assessment and intervention for children and young people aged 0-19 years who have any condition that affects their functional ability, gross motor movement, posture or physical skills development.
The service is child, young person and family focused. It aims to promote maximum independence and the ability of the child/young person to participate in family, school and social activities.

The team provides physiotherapy assessment and intervention for children from 0-15 years who may present with a variety of conditions affecting muscles, bones or joints.
You may be referred to our service via your GP or following attendance at the Urgent Care Centre. You can also self-refer via our email address or over the phone.
The Specialist Paediatric Physiotherapy Outreach Respiratory Team (SPORT) provides physiotherapy assessment and intervention for children and young people aged 0-19 years with a range of respiratory problems such as Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis, Bronchiectasis, or for those children who require ventilatory support.
