Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy is a vital part of rehabilitation whether that be conservative management of a long term condition or pre and post operative management of surgical cases. Being located in the hospital means that we can work very closely with our Veterinary colleagues, in particular orthopaedics, soft tissue and neurology.

We are one of few veterinary hospitals that have an in-house rehabilitation team that can offer a full range of Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy services to our inpatient and outpatient clients, 6 days a week. Our team consists of two Category A ACPAT registered Chartered Physiotherapists and a Registered Canine Hydrotherapist.

See http://www.acpat.org more information on ACPAT Physiotherapists.

 

Our Rehabilitation team includes:

Tamsyn Lafferty - BSc MSc MCSP HCPC RAMP ACPAT Cat A
Chartered Physiotherapist and Veterinary Physiotherapist

Rachael Cornforth - BSc - PgDip Vet Physio - MCSP HCPC RAMP ACPAT Cat A
Chartered Physiotherapist and Veterinary Physiotherapist

Kimberley Sheerin - Registered Canine Hydrotherapist (RCH)
