If you have been invited to a triage appointment in order to further assess your symptoms, please read the following information carefully.
Triage is a method of performing an assessment in order to ascertain which treatment program will best suit you and your individual symptoms.
Physiotherapy is located behind the ‘B’ block lifts on the ground floor of the hospital.
On arriving at the Department of Physiotherapy, please tell reception that you have arrived for triage. Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the self-assessment form.
The physiotherapist will spend approximately 5-7 minutes with you, assessing your movement and ability. Following this, they will advise and discuss specific options with you that may help you to manage your symptoms.
You must contact the department to rearrange your triage appointment. We will organise an interpreter to attend with you for assessment.
If you are experiencing low back, hip or pelvic pain it is important that you download and read a leaflet from the POGP that will help you.
There is also further advice for some simple exercises to start whilst waiting for your appointment.
Please follow the advise on the leafelts above and you should be contacted to arrange a 1:1 appointment with a Physiotherapist.
