Our physiotherapy team has a minimum of five years’ experience (and many team members much more!). They are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Our therapists have extensive experience, many with Masters qualifications in their specialist areas. The team is actively supported to continue to develop through attending courses and conferences to ensure we are using the most up-to-date treatment, and the latest technological advances to aid rehabilitation.
Working within London Bridge Hospital we benefit from a close relationship with Consultants and Radiologists. We meet regularly and have joint clinics, which gives us a deeper level of insight into the diagnosis and treatment of all conditions, allowing us to work together to produce the best long-term results. As we want you to recover and return to your normal activities within the shortest and safest period of time, it also means that if we feel that physiotherapy is not working, or that your problem would benefit further investigation, we know exactly who to refer you to.
