We launched our new pathway for Inpatient to Outpatient rehabilitation in August 2019. The idea behind this new pathway was for patients who suffered major/complex trauma and were treated as inpatients on our trauma wards to transfer to outpatient physiotherapy with ease. Our MSK Outpatient Department facilitate this by having continuity of care with the same Therapist seen on the Inpatient ward and continuing your care in St. George’s Outpatient Department or directly booking you into our Outpatient Services at St John’s Therapy Centre in Clapham Junction or Queen Mary’s Hospital in Roehampton. Your goal driven rehabilitation journey will be facilitated by a Senior Physiotherapist working at these sites with expert experience in major trauma/ complex musculoskeletal conditions. Our teams’ value and respect that high quality specialised care is vital to aid in your recovery.
Our Outpatient Major Trauma Team strive to meet the excellent standards that you should receive by booking your outpatient appointment within 2 weeks of discharge from the inpatient wards. If this has not occurred, please contact our central booking number on; 0208 725 0007. On arrival to one of three Outpatient Departments, your Physiotherapist will have your history and your rehabilitation prescription and will complete a comprehensive initial assessment. This will include completion of some questionnaires to assess the impact of your injuries on your quality of life, both physically and mentally, and will also set specific goals for both short-term and long-term benefits.
Throughout your rehabilitation and working towards your goals you will attend Physiotherapy regularly. This will include individual sessions with your Physiotherapist and our Rehabilitation Technician in the Physiotherapy Department and gym, education, and advice on other services you can access to aid in your recovery, liaison with the MDT where needed and pain management advice. You will also be provided with an individualised exercise programme which we will ask you to carry out at home to help work towards your long- and short-term goals.
You may also attend our Major Trauma Rehabilitation class which we launched in October 2020 which includes patient specific exercises facilitated by our Specialised Physiotherapists and Rehab Technician in the gym with educational sessions applicable to daily life, and group discussions with others who have suffered from a major trauma. The main goal of the class is to encourage patients to communicate struggles, experiences, and positive stories to help the individual in their recovery. Our experienced Trauma Psychologist also attends the class weekly, and you have the opportunity to speak to them about any personal concerns.
Please read our educational/resource booklet which compliments the class and your rehabilitation rehabilitation journey. ** insert patient booklet
