Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy

Last updated: 09 October 2019

The Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Departments provide a service of assessment and treatment for patients with either permanent or temporary disabilities, with the aim of maximising function and preventing further disability. 

The service is provided across a wide range of clinical specialties in the Trust.

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness, or by developmental or other disability. 

Occupational therapy focuses on optimising a patient's ability to participate meaningfully in activities of daily life, including the home environment and work situations. Assessment and appropriate treatment is carried out and goals set, to enable adaptation to functional difficulties and maximisation of independence and quality of life.

The Inpatient Therapy Service focuses on inpatient care and liaises with colleagues within health and social services for community care needs.
