Physiotherapy works for Scarboro’ patients
Scarborough Hospital promotes national physio campaign
Scarborough’s patients are more than happy with the physiotherapy provided.
York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust are supporting a national awareness campaign which aims to promote how “Physio Works”.
More than 220 physiotherapists at the trust work across ten hospital sites and out in the community, providing invaluable support to patients.
Richard Mirfin, a patient at Scarborough Hospital following a full knee replacement, said: “My physiotherapist was really good, she listened and explained things so I knew what to do at home and in the gym sessions.
“They were reassuring and gave me confidence and really made a difference.”
Physiotherapy Works is a three-year programme supported by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy . Last year alone, the paediatric physiotherapy team delivered 2,540 treatments to children.
Victoria Adams, professional lead for physiotherapy at the trust, said: “We want everyone to know that physiotherapy-led rehabilitation really works in helping patients recover quickly and safely.
“It keeps older people independent at home and helps people with long-term conditions maximise their abilities as well as reducing costs in health and social care.”
