Our Physiotherapy Service

Patients can often become debilitated and deconditioned, not only due to their illness but also the side effects of treatment that they are receiving. This not only has an effect on their physical condition but also their psychological wellbeing.On referral, the physiotherapist will carry out a full functional, holistic assessment, and will work alongside the patient and their significant others to set a treatment plan towards realistic and achievable goals.  Implementing strategies for self management is key, enabling and empowering patients to maximise their potential and independence for as long as possible.

Symptoms that the palliative care physiotherapists have specialist expertise in include:

  • Mobility issues
  • Muscle weakness
  • Breathlessness
  • Pain
  • Balance
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety

A physiotherapist may be contacted Monday-Friday, 8.30am-4.30pm on 020 7806 4014 or via email.
