Respiratory Medicine & Medical Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy to help restore function, facilitate safe discharge and the treatment of breathing disorders.

We work with patients on medical wards to improve physical function. We conduct thorough assessments and involve people directly in their own care. 

Some people may struggle to walk, get out of chairs and function in their normal way when they’re feeling unwell.

We work with you to regain your strength and function, plan how you will be able to manage at home on discharge and equip you with the knowledge of how to continue to become stronger once you’re home.

Respiratory – We provide treatments for people admitted with respiratory disorders such as pneumonia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), bronchiectasis and Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD).

This involves:

  • Helping to clear phlegm with people who struggle to do so
  • Education and advice on pacing when you are short of breath
  • Set up and weaning of non-invasive ventilation
