If you think you may have symptoms of Coronavirus, follow the national guidance and self-isolate for seven days. We have Introduced a number of measures and changes to help delay the spread of the virus and maintain essential health services for those that will continue to need them during these unprecedented times. If you, or a member of your family has tested positive for Coronavirus, please find resources to aid your/their recovery on our Coronavirus - Supporting your recovery page.
Most of our referrals are from orthopaedic consultants, A&E and GPs, however we will accept written referrals from consultants inside and outside of the UHDB Trust, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and staff referrals from occupational health. Our referrals are predominantly NHS; however we also accept private physiotherapy referrals.
To refer into physiotherapy please write to:
Group Rehabilitation, Level 3, London Road Community Hospital
or Email referrals to firstname.lastname@example.org
We primarily accept referral for patients with musculoskeletal injuries or conditions. We will accept referrals for patients with non-musculoskeletal issues where their physical deficits are affecting their functional ability, however, we will not accept referrals for patients who are already under the ongoing care of other outpatient occupational therapy services.
Please refer to Group Rehab because you believe your patient would benefit from seeing an occupational therapist NOT because you want them to have access to the gym facilities. You should consider referring to Occupational Therapy if you have a patient who is experiencing difficulty with their ability to function.
Below are examples to consider.
