Hand therapy out-patients (adults and children)

The Royal Free Hospital treats patients after plastic reconstructive surgery, small burns and also has a regional hand trauma centre which includes out-patient hand therapy. Patients from in and around London who experience hand trauma will come to the Royal Free for surgery and rehabilitation.

The physiotherapists and occupational therapists in this team work together to restore patients back to full function and return to work as quickly as possible after hand trauma/surgery.

Patients who live outside the London area can attend for their rehabilitation at Mount Vernon Hospital, Northwood Middlesex. This is more convenient for some patients and many of the therapists in the team work across both sites.

There is a system of "blanket" referral for all in-patients, this means that patients on the children’s and adults Plastic Surgery ward are considered on a daily basis, and their need for therapy is assessed.
