The physiotherapists are based at the Bury Living Well Centre and provide clinics in Elms Bank Specialist Arts College*. The team in Elms Bank consists of a senior paediatric physiotherapist and a full time senior paediatric physiotherapy assistant. There is also a team leader senior paediatric physiotherapist and a senior paediatric physiotherapy assistant.
*Please note: the physiotherapy team are part of the team that covers all of the children in Bury so they may not be on site full time due to other commitments and appointments. They do endeavour to provide the best physiotherapy service they can with current staffing levels which may change in the future.
All children who have identified physiotherapy needs require a referral which is accepted from GPs and consultants if the child is not already known to the physiotherapy team. On referral a baseline assessment is completed to outline the child's needs and a physiotherapy treatment plan is devised; which is shared with parents/carers and class staff.
The physiotherapy team also supports the orthotic clinics in school with an orthotist from Fairfield General Hospital to monitor the orthotic needs of the children known to their service.
The physiotherapy team can be contacted at parents’ evenings and other open events in the school, via the home/school diary or by telephone.
