COVID 19 AFFECTING PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICES

Due to government recommendations on social distancing most Physiotherapy outpatient services have now moved to video or phone consultations. If you have had recent surgery and require Physiotherapy follow up or have a scheduled appointment we will contact you to arrange this. Unfortunately, if you are on a waiting list this will potentially increase the time you have to wait. We will be in touch to arrange appointments as soon as we are able.

Welcome to the Physiotherapy Service

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.  It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness  in the future. Physiotherapy takes a holistic approach that involves the patient directly in their own care. Physiotherapy is not a passive treatment. To get the most from your treatment, you will be asked to do exercises and to follow advice given by your Physiotherapist. More information about Physiotherapy can be found at www.csp.uk 

All the Physiotherapists working at the Hospital are Chartered Physiotherapists and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).   

Physiotherapists work with both Adults and Children. The Adult Physiotherapy Service is part of the Adult Therapies Clinical Service Unit and work across all sites of Leeds Teaching Hospitals. The Children’s Physiotherapy Service is part of the Children’s Hospital which is based on the LGI site. 

We welcome patient feedback and undertake a regular patient satisfaction survey

As a teaching hospital we are proud to work with local, national and international physiotherapy students. They may be involved in your care.
