The domiciliary service provides assessment and treatment of patients requiring physiotherapy input but for whom attending an out-patient department would be difficult or for whom treatment in their own home would be most appropriate.
Our Home Visit service is offered to patients living within a 3 mile radius of the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth and The Portobello Clinic. The service can be provided by arrangement to our Chancery Lane patients.
Contact Lauren Kerr for information.
