Community Therapy Team

We provide rehabilitation in patients’ own homes, helping them build the skills to help themselves, improve their physical function and keep their independence.

Our occupational therapist or physiotherapist will give each new patient a holistic assessment which we use to design personalised support, including:

  • exercises to improve strength and balance
  • review the home environment and provide advice or equipment if required
  • specialist equipment
  • strategies and advice to reduce the risk of falling, if they have a history of falls

Our service is available to all patients over the age of 18 who are registered with a GP in:

  • South Notts
    • Nottingham North and East: including Gedling, Ashfield, Broxtowe
    • Rushcliffe
    • Nottingham West - including Beeston, Eastwood, Kimberley and Stapleford
  • Bassetlaw (Bassetlaw Community Therapy)
  • Mid Nottinghamshire (Mid Notts Community therapy)
