Formerly St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Our Services A - Z - Critical Care, Surgery and Cardiology Therapy Team

About the service

We are a team of Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists who provide a therapy service to the patients on Critical Care and the Surgical wards. We also provide a respiratory Physiotherapy service for the Paediatric ward. We provide a blanket cover service for ICU, here we offer daily respiratory assessment and treatment, assess mobility and progress rehabilitation aiming to return the patient to pre-admission baseline.
On the surgical wards we run a referral based service which is available to patients who are needing input to return to preadmission mobility. If this cannot be achieved during their inpatient stay, we then plan a safe discharge method out of hospital with the availability of input from community services. We liaise daily with the wider MDT by attending board rounds and partake in pre-operative clinics, i.e. bowel, renal and bariatric school.
