As a community physiotherapy team, our services are available at various locations.
Community based care
We are based at West Acklam Centre, for all children seen in the community.
You may be seen at West Acklam Centre, in school, nursery, a child minder’s address or at home.
Some appointments may take place in other places in the community such as children’s centres or clinics.
Hospital based care
At The James Cook University Hospital, we work on the critical care unit, medical ward 21, surgical ward 22, the day unit or in the emergency department.
We also see babies referred by the nurses or doctors on the neonatal unit and occasionally on the maternity ward.
You will also find a physiotherapist in the respiratory, cystic fibrosis (CF) and neonatal clinics in children’s outpatients.
If it is felt useful, we sometimes see children in the hydrotherapy (warm therapy pool) in the hospital.
You may have a physiotherapist based at your school. Physiotherapists work at Kirkleatham School, KTS Academy and Priory Woods School. We also cover Discovery School.
