Falls Team

The Falls Team aims to ensure clients receive the most appropriate assessment, treatment, advice and information to reduce the risk of falls in the future and to maximise their confidence and indepence.

We currently only receive referrals from the Falls Clinic and Therapy Unit for patients who may need physiotherapy or occupational therapy to help address their falls.

Patients are assessed individually and then receive appropriate treatment. This may include attending our specialist balance and safety group, where they will complete an eight week programme of exercises and information / advice sessions. In addition, they may be provided with home assessment to reduce their risk of falling at home.

The team includes:

  • Physiotherapist
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Remedial Instructor
  • Therapy Assistants
