The Hillingdon Paediatric Physiotherapy Service is part of the larger Children's Integrated Therapy Service (CITS) in Hillingdon.
The Hillingdon Paediatric Physiotherapy Service provides assessment, diagnosis and therapy for children and young people to move properly after a movement disorder. These disorders may be a result of injury, illness or disability.
Our Physiotherapists will work in different ways to help children and young people in Hillingdon to move according to the needs of the child/young person. Following the referral being accepted, the child/young person will have an initial assessment at a clinic location. On-going therapy will be discussed and arranged with parents/carer(s) on an individual basis according to the needs of the child or young person.
We work in partnership with all professionals that might be involved in the child’s care. This could include:
- Occupational Therapists
- Speech and Language Therapists
- Early Support Service
- Education staff
- Social Care
To make sure that your child receives the best care, it may sometimes be helpful for us to contact other professionals about your child and share information together. We will seek your consent beforehand.
The Children’s Integrated Therapy Service operates an open referral system, which means that anyone can refer a child/young person to any of the therapy services.
