Paediatric Physiotherapy


The Paediatric Physiotherapy team at East Lancashire Hospitals provides a service to children and young people living in Burnley, Pendle, Rossendale, the Ribble Valley and Blackburn with Darwen who have a registered GP within this area.

We are a team of Physiotherapists, Assistant Practitioners, Advanced Therapy Assistants and Clinical support workers who are specialised in working with children and young people.

Using a family centred care approach, our vision is to support the child and young person alongside their parents and carers to achieve their goals, maximising their gross motor potential through activities which are engaging and motivating. 

We support children, young people and their families with a long term diagnosis to become involved in their care and treatment so that they are confident in managing their needs. We encourage therapy to become part of everyday life, building it into their daily home and school routines to promote their lifelong health and wellbeing.
