Paediatric Physiotherapy

We promote physical health and well-being in children and young people.

We have three specialist teams working in early years, mainstream schools and learning disability. We offer specialist assessment, advice and treatment to children and young people who have delayed or impaired functional skills associated with a wide range of difficulties.

We work with children and young people with physical disabilities including end of life care. We also act as a resource base for other practitioners working with children and young people. We see children from birth to 18 years or 19 years if there is an EHCP. We also see young people known to the service with a long term disability up to the age of 25 years.
