Attend Anywhere

This service uses remote consultation called Attend anywhere. This is a video consultation where you can have the appointment from your own home. For more information please see the attend anywhere page or take a look at this leaflet.

Attend Anywhere
  • acute musculoskeletal injuries e.g. sports injuries
  • congenital disorders e.g. spina bifida
  • congenital syndromes and metabolic diseases
  • developmental delay that affects how your child moves around
  • neurological conditions e.g. cerebral palsy
  • neuromuscular disorders e.g. muscular dystrophy
  • orthopaedic conditions e.g. Osgood Schlatters disease
  • problems relating to very flexible (hypermobile) joints
  • rheumatology conditions e.g. childhood arthritis

If your child has been referred and accepted to our service, we’ll invite you both in for an assessment. This appointment usually lasts 1 hour. We’ll ask you some questions about your child’s history and assess what their needs are. We recommend your child wears a pair of shorts to the appointment as we may also check to see how they move.

Once we’ve done the assessment, we’ll discuss the results and suggested treatment with you. This might include ongoing treatment like individual or group physiotherapy sessions. We’ll also give you some advice about how to help your child with exercises at home.

You might also get invited to appointments for:

  • a follow up to see how they’re getting on
  • an assessment for specialist equipment

Your child will only be discharged from physiotherapy when we all agree that:

  • their therapy goals have been met or
  • they are able to develop their skills with the help of their family and school
