Rehabilitation Unit - Halton

The Rehabilitation Unit provides a comprehensive outpatient occupational therapy and physiotherapy assessment and treatment service.

The Rehabilitation Unit is based at Halton Hospital. It provides a comprehensive outpatient neurotherapy assessment and treatment service. Physiotherapy is available for patients in Halton and Warrington, and Occupational Therapy for patients in Halton.

Our therapists assess the physical, cognitive, perceptual, and psychosocial needs of the patients. The team also involve carers and/or family in the assessment process so that their opinions and needs can be addressed. From this, individual patient-centred plans are developed in collaboration with the patient and carer. Goals are discussed with the patient which are included in the treatment plan. Advice and education are central to the rehabilitative process and the benefits of self-management are highlighted to the patient and carer. Patients are provided with a home programme to maximise their mobility and function; this is then augmented through a range of therapeutic activities to address the identified problems and goals.

Our service also works with other agencies, such as Live Wire (Warrington) and Halton Health Improvement Team to promote general wellbeing and support the independent management of long-term conditions.

Once known to the service, patients can be supported through access to the Review Register, this allows patients to self-refer into the service when they need to.
