Children's Therapy Service

The Children’s Therapy Service consists of children’s physiotherapists and occupational therapists. As a health service we work with children, their families, carers, and education professionals in order to assist with development of the child’s physical and functional skills, and recovery and rehabilitation from illness or injury. We work with children who have a range of conditions which may lead to sensory or physical impairments.


Some young persons are seen within other service areas as appropriate to their clinical needs following a GP referral.

For further information about what physiotherapists and occupational therapists can offer as part of their assessment and treatment, please see the downloadable document.
