Information for Parents and Families

Who are we?
As part of Gloucestershire’s Children and Young People’s Physiotherapy Service we have physiotherapists who work in the Children’s Centre in Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. These physiotherapists aim to support children & young people who are in hospital by providing them and their families with support, advice and physical intervention to promote optimum outcome for the child and their family during their hospital stay and often on their return home.

What do we see?
We see any child or young person who has been admitted to the Children’s Wards at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital who require physiotherapy intervention. This may be following surgery, for a chest condition, following a broken bone or receiving oncology treatment. We also have a physiotherapist who works with young babies and their families on the neonatal unit.

What to expect?
We aim to provide an effective, safe, high quality service and work closely with other healthcare staff on the children’s wards. A physiotherapist will provide assessment, advice and physiotherapy treatment to promote the rehabilitation of each individual.  Treatment is planned around the child and families’ individual needs. The length and frequency of the treatment will vary for each child and condition.

When can I be seen?
The physiotherapy in-service operates from 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays.#
