The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust


Physiotherapists


Throughout the course of your child’s treatment there may be times when they require the intervention of one of our physiotherapists.

Physiotherapy services are provided during the week Monday to Friday 8.30 - 4.30 by the paediatric physiotherapy team on the wards and in clinic.

Children and Teenagers can be seen for acute chest physiotherapy at night or over the weekend by a member of the paediatric physiotherapy staff.

The Physiotherapists see children and teenagers to help with mobility, loss of function, musculo-skeletal problems, chest infections, fatigue and delayed development. We also advise on how to maintain an appropriate level of physical fitness and exercise throughout and following treatment.

If you feel that your child may benefit from having the  input of a physiotherapist please inform a physiotherapist or any member of staff as we are happy to see parents and children for advice at any time.
