Neurological outpatient physiotherapy

The outpatient neurological therapy service provides specialist assessment and treatment to patients with a neurological condition.

Patients are referred by neurologists, ear, nose and throat, and other speciality consultants.

They can also be referred by inpatient therapists if someone requires a review once they're discharged from Barnet Hospital.

The symptoms and conditions the team help with are:

  • vestibular conditions, eg BPPV
  • Parkinson's disease
  • multiple sclerosis
  • motor neurone disease
  • neuropathy
  • long-term neurological conditions
  • stroke
  • facial palsy

Respiratory outpatient physiotherapy

The respiratory and surgery team works across both inpatient (critical care and wards) and outpatient settings.

Our therapy multidisciplinary team (MDT) includes physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, speech and language therapists and therapy support workers. 

As an inpatient service, our therapy MDT works across critical care, respiratory, surgical, cardiology and acute medicine wards. The team provide specialist assessments for patients with both acute and chronic treatment needs.

Treatment plans are developed and delivered according to the needs of each patient, alongside advice and necessary referrals to support the patient’s safe discharge from hospital. 

The respiratory outpatient service at Barnet Hospital provides assessment and treatment of long-term respiratory conditions such as bronchiectasis and disordered breathing patterns.

During your first outpatient appointment, you'll be assessed by a senior respiratory physiotherapist.

Treatments can include teaching airway clearance techniques, breathing strategies, and relaxation techniques. 
Remember to wear appropriate clothing to your appointment. You may be required to walk or climb stairs as part of your assessment.

At Barnet Hospital and Chase Farm Hospital, referrals are only accepted from Royal Free London consultants and via the NHS e-Referral Service.
