The Physiotherapy Department is a dynamic, forward thinking, friendly team that aims to provide evidence based, best practice treatment to the clients of the Mersey Community Hospital.

Services cover those clients following major abdominal surgery, orthopaedic surgery, recovering from a chest infection or a stroke and those admitted with falls or at risk of falls.

The aim with each individual is to encourage a speedy recovery and return clients to their previous functional condition. The team works with each individual and their family/carers, formulating goals to achieve in order to enable discharge from hospital as soon as is possible. The Physiotherapy team can also liaise with other community physiotherapy providers for follow up upon discharge from hospital.
