COVID-19 Restrictions to remain in place at our hospital

Trauma Therapy Team

Service contact information

Service detail

All patients admitted to WCFT following major trauma are assessed by the Trauma Therapy Team.

The Walton Centre trauma therapy team includes two Trauma Therapy Co-ordinators, one Physiotherapist and one Occupational Therapist.

Admitted with Trauma

All patients admitted with trauma are required to have a Rehabilitation Prescription completed. The Rehabilitation Prescription forms a major part of best practice. The document, which requires input from the whole multidisciplinary team (MDT), identifies a trauma patient’s acute rehabilitation needs and indicates ongoing, longer term rehabilitation requirements. The therapy team will also assess, treat and assist with the co-ordination of care of all trauma inpatients as required.

Trauma Therapy Team 

The trauma therapy team work closely with both the inpatient physiotherapy/occupational therapy team and the neuro-trauma MDT.

The therapy trauma team are involved in the weekly MDT meeting in which all patients with head and/or spinal trauma are reviewed. The team also works in collaboration with Aintree University Hospital’s trauma team.
