Physiotherapy for international and private patients

Physiotherapy aims to help treat children and young people with physical difficulties as well as providing support for families and carers. There are two dedicated physiotherapists who work across the International and Private Patients (IPP) wards (Butterfly, Bumblebee and Hedgehog).
