If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you come unless you hear otherwise. See all our information about COVID-19, including our most current visiting information.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, and following current guidance from NHS England, we are beginning to resume face to face appointments where a video or telephone consultation is not sufficient to meet your child’s needs.

All initial assessments will continue to be completed via video or telephone where we will discuss your child’s therapy needs and treatment plan with you to ensure your child is receiving the input they require.

We are regularly reviewing the situation with the safety of our families and staff being our top priority.

If your child has an open referral to our physiotherapy team and you need to speak to a physiotherapist urgently, please contact our admin team on 020 3049 8181 who will take a message with your child’s name and date of birth and a qualified physiotherapist will get back to you as soon as possible.

We are still triaging new referrals and if the referral meets our criteria you will be contacted with a video or telephone appointment.

Our service

Our community physiotherapy team provides a high standard of care across Lambeth and Southwark for children aged 0-16 years with complex needs (e.g. Cerebral Palsy, neuromuscular conditions, global developmental delay)

Our specialist physiotherapists will also assess your child if there are concerns with their gross motor development including balance, posture, co-ordination and movement. We will then provide support and advice to help your child to achieve their goals in collaboration with you.

These settings including:

  • clinic/group based sessions at Mary Sheridan Centre and Sunshine House
  • homes
