Group Rehabilitation

Group Rehabilitation is mainly exercise based therapy for patients, either in a group or outpatient setting, depending on their needs and abilities. Group settings create a supportive environment for patients, and ensure our service is both cost effective and efficient.

Rehabilitation is tailored towards the individual needs of the patient, and aims to increase mobility, including returning to work following illness or injury.

Physiotherapists specialise in rehabilitation of lower limb conditions after an operation or surgery. They also work closely with orthopaedic consultants to establish treatments and discuss patient recovery. Occupational therapists treat a variety of injuries and conditions that are limiting a patient’s ability to move normally, and support patients to remain in work, or return to work.

The service has an open plan gym, with space for assessment stations and matt-based exercises, and two further rooms containing a variety of resistance and cardiovascular equipment. Patients attend at specific times which suit a particular condition or rehabilitation aims.

There is access to separate treatment cubicles for patients who need privacy for their treatment.

Referral at Florence Nightingale Community Hospital ensures that other services can keep their waiting lists low, and patients receive the right treatment at the right time.
