Adult Community Therapy Services

Our physiotherapy and occupational therapy teams help people regain or maintain function and independence in their daily life.

Our therapists treat people in their own homes, residential and nursing homes, in outpatient clinics and remotely via telephone or video consultations. Following an initial assessment, the therapy service will work with the patient to achieve mutually agreed treatment goals. The service actively promotes self-management and patients are discharged from the service once their realistic goals are achieved.
