How we are working during COVID 19
Due to the COVID 19 global pandemic we have had to adapted to a new style of service delivery in order to provide a safe service. To achieve this we have implemented the following:
- Redesigned service delivery to fit with the Virtual First approach
- Delivering telephone consultations
- Delivering video consultations where appropriate
- Prepare for face to face consultations by implementing robust infection control guidelines
The physiotherapy provision will not change in terms of provision offered as per the local offer. This means the service however is adopting a ‘Virtual First’ model in line with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) guidelines and UHB NHS Trust recommendations.
This means that more consultations will happen via telephone and video. The service will aim to link in with education settings and multidisciplinary teams with joint video consultations and we will continue to provide written guidelines for parents and schools to follow.
