Salford Royal Children's Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy

The Salford Royal Children's Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Service helps children and young people with acute or developmental conditions and/or life long disabilities.   

Physiotherapy promotes normal development of early movement skills. It can also help to maximise your child's movement skills following acute illness or injury, or as a result of a chronic or long term condition.

Occupational therapy provides a range of interventions for children and young people who, as a result of an acute or developmental condition and/or life long disability, may experience difficulties in taking care of themselves or taking part in school-based or leisure activities. The occupational therapist may also recommend adaptations to your child's environment or provision or specialist equipment to help your child to achieve their potential.  

Some children may be seen by both physiotherapy and occupational therapy, depending on their therapy needs. Your child will have an assessment and following this we'll develop a therapy plan. This will be reviewed on an agreed basis according to your child's needs.

You can see a therapist in your home, at school or nursery, or at a clinic or health centre depending on your child's needs. The therapists work closely with other health, education and social care professionals to ensure child centred care.

If you want to request an assessment or want more information, you can contact the service directly on 0161 607 1448. Alternatively, you can ask your GP, teacher, social worker or another health professional to refer you.
