Children's Therapies Team - St Helens and Knowsley


Who we are
Our Community Paediatric Therapy Team includes physiotherapists, occupational therapists, assistant practitioners, therapy assistants and administration assistants. 

Our services focus on children's functional or physical needs. This could be areas such as:
  • Difficulty in self care skills
  • Musculoskeletal problems
  • Neurodevelopmental difficulties 
  • Sensory processing difficulties 
We provide a range of therapies both one-to-one and group sessions at clinics, patient homes, community centres, special and mainstream schools and nurseries in St Helens and Knowsley.

Who is our service for?
Our service is for children from birth to 19 years who live in St Helens and Knowsley. 

Who do we work in partnership with?
We work with a range of individuals to support our service and provide the best possible outcomes for children. Some examples of the people who we work with to help us are parents, teachers, children's nurses, speech and language therapists, consultants, and external agencies such as social enterprises or charities. This list is not exhaustive as we will work with any other key individual or organisation who is involved in the child's life to ensure the child is supported to achieve his or her goals.

How to access our service
We have an open referral process which means all professionals and parents or guardians can refer into our service. The referral will be triaged by a qualified member of staff and if appropriate will be accepted by our team and the appropriate professional allocated to the child.

To make a referral contact childhealthservices@nwbh.nhs.uk for a referral form or call 0151 244 4387 and a referral can be taken over the phone.
