Paediatric Physiotherapy


The children’s physiotherapy service provides assessment, advice and treatment to children and young people from birth up to 18 years old. We provide the service in community and hospital settings, working closely with the child/young person and family to ensure family-centred care, and the wider multi-disciplinary team.

  • difficulties associated with balance and coordination 
  • delay in acquiring motor skills
  • orthopaedic and rheumatological conditions e.g. childhood arthritis, Structural / Congenital Talipes Equinovarus (Ponseti Service see below)
