Acute Therapies and Rehabilitation Team

The Acute Therapies and Rehabilitation Team consist of Occupational Therapy (OT) and Physiotherapy (PT) teams working across a range of acute hospital specialities as well as community settings.  The teams at University College Hospital and University College Hospital at Westmoreland Street  provide short-term rehabilitation to acute and chronically ill adults as well as providing quality post-operative rehabilitation services following elective surgical procedures. The teams cover all wards and will accept referrals for any patients who require assessment and treatment to optimise their function, mobility or condition. This is to ensure patients receive appropriate treatment to aid in their physical recovery and in a safe and effective discharge home.

Therapists working in the Acute Therapy Team in A&E/AMU provide emergency therapy interventions to prevent an admission to hospital

The team at UCH provide long-term rehabilitation to paediatric and adolescent patients
