The children’s therapy team delivers care alongside other healthcare professionals in the hospital. We cover the three specialties of dietetics, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.
Team members may visit patients on the hospital wards, in clinics or in the outpatient department or they may come to see you in the community, at your home or at school.
Our team cares for patients who have been referred by a hospital consultant. When we receive a new referral our admin team will contact you to offer a suitable appointment and will send a written confirmation of your appointment day and time.
If you cannot attend your appointment please call us and let us know as soon as possible so that we can give someone else the opportunity to see us instead. If you give us less than 24 hours’ notice this will need to be recorded as ‘did not attend’ on your record.
If you do not attend your appointment we will send you a letter asking you to contact us within two weeks to arrange a new appointment. If you do not contact us within this time you will be discharged.
If you do not attend your re-booked appointment you will automatically be discharged.
