Service overview

The Domiciliary Physiotherapy Service sees patients who are housebound or who are best seen at home because of a need to assess function in own environment.

Patients may be referred following an acute episode (e.g. fracture, illness or surgery) or because they are managing long term conditions, or are elderly frail and experiencing mobility difficulties

Interventions vary from a single visit to provide equipment or advice, to a defined episode of care (e.g. following surgery), or to several episodes of care over a longer period (e.g. for a patient managing a deteriorating condition such as Multiple sclerosis)

Management may include:

  • Exercise programme
  • Mobility advice
  • Provision of equipment
  • Advice/guidance

We treat

Conditions may be orthopaedic, neurological, or medical. Patients often have multiple pathologies.

Referral criteria
