There is a blanket referral system for all in-patients.
Adult Outpatient Physiotherapy: Patients are referred for outpatient physiotherapy from consultants both RNOH and external, GPs and other healthcare professionals.
Paediatric Outpatient Physiotherapy: The service provides specialist orthopaedic outpatient physiotherapy for children aged 0-18 at the point of referral. Children and young people are referred by Orthopaedic Consultants and Paediatricians, as well as specialist centres, before and after surgery. As a tertiary centre we accept referrals for patients who require more specialist physiotherapy intervention following local intervention.
Please see our referral criteria for more information.
