Event/Service information

Physiotherapy will be available through the group for people with MS, following a fall, a recent relapse, a recent infection, illness or a sudden deterioration in condition.

There will be an initial assessment with advice and then up to six sessions will be provided as necessary determined by the physiotherapist involved. Recipients will be expected to contribute half the cost of the treatment unless they qualify for the total cost under the hardship grant scheme.

The service is not meant to replace existing physiotherapy services through the NHS, the neurogym or community physiotherapy, but complements those services. When someone is referred to these services, there is often quite a wait to receive physiotherapy in the above circumstances. As a result, it may be beneficial to get some advice/treatment whilst waiting. It is not meant to provide ongoing physiotherapy. The aim is to get people back on their feet quicker.
