Referral criteria

This service is for adults registered with a GP in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland who require rehabilitation to support return of their function and wellbeing.

To access our community therapy services you should speak to your GP or any other health or social care professional involved in your care, for example your nurse or social worker. Once a referral is received it will be reviewed by a clinician and allocated to the most appropriate therapy team. At this point you will receive a letter advising you which team will treat you.
