The physiotherapy service serves the population in the areas surrounding Ashford and St Peters Foundation NHS trust, for both in patient and out patient care.

The aim of physiotherapy is to assist patients of all ages in identifying and maximising their movement potential and improving their quality of life.

We have a variety of in patient teams including respiratory/medical, surgical, orthopaedic, neurological and paediatric teams, who cover all acute admissions at the St Peters site, and offer quality post-operative and rehabilitation services at the Ashford hospital site.

The teams cover all wards and will accept referrals for any patients who require assessment and treatment to optimise their function, mobility or condition. This is to ensure patients receive appropriate treatment to aid in their physical recovery and safe discharge home.

We have outpatient teams across both sites which can be accessed by consultant specialist clinics or direct GP referral. The outpatient teams offer quality assessment and treatment of a variety of neuro-musckuloskeletal conditions (paediatric, adult and pelvic health) with a view to aiding rehabilitation, injury prevention, promoting health and wellbeing and general functional improvement. To best progress our treatment we place an important emphasis on self-management. Exercise classes and hydrotherapy sessions are offered to help patients integrate exercise into their daily lives.

Both sites also use their gymnasium space or local gyms to run specialist rehabilitation classes for people with cardiac disease, respiratory problems and amputations.

 

Outpatient Physiotherapy Services

Since July 2019, we have been able to offer our specialist rehab services out of local gyms including The River Bourne Health Club in Chertsey, Woking Leisure Centre and Egham Orbit Gym where we have access to modern, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment.

Providing rehabilitation in a gym environment can help to inspire patients to be more active and continue to be active after their course of treatment has ended. “Demedicalising” the environment is in line with the biopsychosocial approach of the Surrey iMSK service.
