Children's Therapy Service - Poole Hospital NHS

We see children/young people aged 0 to 19 years, living across Poole, Bournemouth and East Dorset (including Swanage and Christchurch). The team consists of specialist paediatric occupational therapists, physiotherapists and therapy assistants. The therapists are responsible for the assessment and treatment of children and young people's developmental, motor (fine and gross) and/or sensory difficulties.

They are part of the pre-school multi-disciplinary diagnostic team and we work in the hospital, in children's homes, nurseries, pre-schools and schools
