Our healthcare therapy services

Our therapy services cover so many things. We work in wards and clinics right across the Newcastle Hospitals – the Freeman Hospital, RVI, and the Campus for Ageing and Vitality. We also work with patients in their own communities – in clinics, surgeries and in their own home and schools.

We provide therapy services to support:

  • recovery after an operation or other medical treatment
  • coping with illness or injury
  • re-learning skills to help with everyday activities
  • learning to adapt and live with long-term conditions and changes to their health
  • management of chronic conditions
  • children with a developmental delay, and supporting them to maximise their  potential.
