What should I / my relatives bring into hospital for physiotherapy sessions?
Please consider bringing in the following:
- Footwear – well fitting slippers or outdoor shoes.
- Walking aid.
- Your wheelchair if you use one.
- Comfortable clothes.
- Any specialist appliance for mobility.
Please liaise with the ward physiotherapist before bringing in specialist mobility equipment.
What will happen after I leave hospital?
Following a period of physiotherapy at the Royal Surrey Hospital, patients may require a longer period of rehabilitation at a community hospital prior to discharge home. This is a joint decision between all members of the team involved in the patients care.
If a patient is discharged directly home from hospital, the physiotherapist may consider a referral for ongoing physiotherapy in the community or follow up by specialist nurses or teams.
