The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

About us

We have specialist teams of physiotherapists working throughout the Children's Hospital. For further information on a specific team please select one of the choices on the left.

Our main hub is within the Child Therapy Department in the The Leeds Children's Hospital, Clarendon Wing. Here we have a reception area with plenty to do such as drawing, a reading corner and a Wendy house with fully fitted kitchen. We have individual treatment rooms, a gym and a hydrotherapy pool. Most of our specialist teams also have dedicated rehabilitation areas on their respective wards. Here you will find specialist equipment used to assist therapy and rehabilitation sessions and age appropriate toys and games to ensure the children under our care enjoy their physiotherapy treatment and gain the most from it.

Hydrotherapy is used by all teams as an add on to therapy. The warm water allows relaxation, provides buoyancy and resistance to help children relax, reduce the pain they may be experiencing, strengthen weakened muscles and re-gain endurance.
