Eligibility criteria (who is the service for?)

The service provides physiotherapy to children and adolescents registered with a general practitioner (GP) in the borough of Hillingdon. Patients are accepted up to the age of 18, or up to 19 if attending a special school in Hillingdon and physiotherapy is listed under paragraph 3 of their statement of special educational needs (SEN statement).

Children registered with a general practitioner (GP) in West Hertfordshire or Harrow but are resident in Hillingdon are also eligible to access the service.

The service attends to patients with:

  • A problem in their musculoskeletal system and are aged five years or younger. Children over the age of five are referred to the general physiotherapy service.
  • A disorder of movement related to a long-term condition.

How can someone be referred?

The service operates an open referral system, which means that all professionals and parents can refer. Parents and carers are advised to discuss a referral first with their GP. Only written referrals are accepted. Professionals with access to the Rio system may complete an electronic referral.

Each new referral is prioritised according to set criteria and if appropriate is placed on the waiting list.

Can I use NHS E-Referral (formerly Choose and Book) to arrange my first outpatient appointment?

NHS e-Referral is not applicable to this service.

Service times

Services are available from 08:30-16:30, Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays (appointments only).

Sessions take place at the Child Development Centre and a number of health centres and children’s centres in Hillingdon.

The service can also arrange home visits and visits to day nurseries and schools, where this is indicated.

Cancelling or rebooking an appointment

If you need to cancel or rebook an appointment it is important that you tell us as soon as possible before so we can re-book your appointment. This helps us to offer an appointment to somebody else on the waiting list. 

For Ring and Book appointments, please contact the children’s centre at which your appointment was scheduled to take place.

If you do not attend a physiotherapy appointment without contacting us in advance we will not offer any further appointments.
