Referral Details

We only accept referrals from GPs, Paediatricians and other therapists. When we receive a referral we will write to you to acknowledge this and to invite you to contact us. Referrals are triaged and parents are then invited to opt in, before being allocated and invited to attend an assessment at their local clinic. Once you have made contact your child will be placed on to our prioritised waiting list and a Physiotherapist will then contact you to offer an appointment.

We offer appointments at several locations depending on where you live – if you have a preference please let us know. These include; The John Parkes Unit (Torbay Hospital Annexe), Newton Abbot Hospital, Brixham Hospital, Totnes Hospital, Dartmouth Clinic, Mayfield Special School, and Bidwell Brook Special School. We can also offer appointments at your child’s nursery or school setting and at home if appropriate.
