The Physiotherapy Department provides a wide range of therapeutic services and is committed to delivering the highest standard of care whilst recognising and maintaining the patients’ dignity and individuality, in a safe caring environment. All our patients benefit from being treated in one of our five individual treatment rooms and we have a purpose built, fully equipped gymnasium.
