Adult Community Physiotherapy Referrals

What we do

Our team of state registered physiotherapists offers physiotherapy services to adults registered with a South Sefton GP.

We assess, treat and support people in their homes and other community settings. Depending upon the person’s needs they will be directed on to one of our specialist pathways; Neurological Rehabilitation, Care Homes, Falls Prevention or Specialist Community pathway.

Following assessment the physiotherapist may offer patients one or more of the following treatments:

  • An individualised home exercise programme
  • Advice on how to manage their condition (self-management strategies)
  • Falls prevention advice • Advice regarding suitable equipment
  • Provision of appropriate mobility aids
  • Pain management, e.g. TENS, Acupuncture
  • Information regarding services that may be of help

Referrals

Core hours for the service are Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm. Referrals into the service are through GPs or any healthcare professional involved in the person’s care.
