Our referral process
We treat children / young people with additional needs 0-19 years in full time education for as long as physiotherapy is indicated
Children / Young people with musculoskeletal problems: 0-14 years
If your child is seen by a health visitor, please discuss your concerns with them first and if their needs cannot be met through their intervention, they can make a referral.
If your child is in school or nursery, please discuss your concerns with the SENCO who may then make a referral if their needs cannot be met through nursery/school provision.
Referrals can also be made by other health professionals, including your GP.
All referrals are sent to the Children’s Single Point of Access (CSPA), where referrals are discussed by a team of professionals from the Integrated Therapy Team. This ensures that your child is seen by the most appropriate team within our service and jointly with other therapy services if appropriate.
