About This Service

Eligibility criteria

Children and young people (up to 19) who are in full-time education and registered with a GP in the NHS Mid Essex area (excluding Halstead ) or attend a special school inside the area.

Exclusions

We are not able to offer an acute respiratory or pain-management service.

Service details

We offer physiotherapy on an individual or group basis for neuro-developmental, muscular-skeletal and co-ordination difficulties.

Children and young people are seen at Moulsham Grange Children’s Centre or, when a need arises, at their school, nursery or home.

We offer a variety of approaches, including Bobath, conductive education and hydrotherapy.

We support children and young people post surgery, after Botox and with palliative-care needs.

24-hour postural management for neuro-developmental conditions is achieved through equipment provision, including sleep systems and exercise programmes.  Lycra garments and orthotic devices are supplied via clinics with visiting orthotists.

Specialist school motor assessments are carried out jointly with the occupational therapy service.

Our team includes qualified physiotherapists and assistants.

All children and young people are seen within 18 weeks and prioritised according to clinical need and age, with pre-school children taking precedence due to their greater potential for rehabilitation.

Service Delivery

We run therapy clinics at a variety of locations, such as Moulsham Grange Children's Centre in Chelmsford, schools, children’s centres, nurseries, clinics or your child’s home.

Our service runs Monday to Friday, 8.30am-5pm. We are based at Moulsham Grange.

Referral process

Your child must be referred by a healthcare professional, such as a community or acute paediatrician, GP, health visitor or education staff.

If your child lives out of area but attends a special school within our area, they may be seen at school premises.
