Specialist Teams within the Out-Patient Physiotherapy Department

At Queen's Hospital we offer a high level of care by working in specialist teams. This means you will be assessed and your symptoms treated by the physiotherapist and team who have the most appropriate skills for your personal needs, linking with the consultants for these specialities. If physiotherapy has not previously been helpful, we may have other approaches to your treatment which have not already been tried.

It will be decided which of the specialist teams will be most appropriate to look after you based on the information given in the referral letter. 

The teams are led by skilled and experienced therapists, all of whom who have received post graduate training in their specialist areas. You may have a condition which does not fit into a ‘specialist’ area, or have multiple and complex problems.  If so you will be seen by an experienced therapist who has the most appropriate skills for you. 

The aim of our approach is to reach the best outcome for you as quickly and safely as possible, with the emphasis being on assisting you to return to your normal activities, including staying at, or returning to work. 

The physiotherapy department offers support from many specialist teams.

Please see individual pages for information relating to each team.
