Our service offers a child and family centred approach to children and young people from 0-18 years of age who are registered with a GP in Hertfordshire and who have a physical disability or condition that impacts on their development and their functional daily activities at home or in school.
Children’s Physiotherapy is a specialist team providing services to children and young people to promote health and preserve and improve the best possible functional level of the child or young person.
Children’s Physiotherapists have an understanding of:
The Children’s Physiotherapy Service is staffed by qualified Physiotherapists who are supported by Assistants and Administrative and Clerical workers.
All Physiotherapists are registered with the national regulatory body, Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) which maintains an on line register of all Physiotherapists meeting the required standards. www.hpc-uk.org
For more information on how we work, please see the Children and Young People’s Therapies page.
The Children’s Therapies service is now piloting a therapy advice clinic for preschool children with Down Syndrome living within the East Hertfordshire area. Parents or carers can book into these clinics to access advice and informal assessment from a physiotherapist, occupational therapist and speech and language therapist. They do not need a referral and do not have to be currently open to the service in order to access it. Booking details can be found HERE.
This is a dedicated telephone number which parents, carers and professionals can call to speak to a therapist about a new referral or a child’s development. Please leave a message on our Advice Line and a therapist will contact you. Calls are responded to by a therapist on weekdays.
For information on our service delivery during COVID-19, please see our CYP Therapies Service page.
Please remember to also look on the Website pages under Useful Information for further advice and support.
