Rehabilitation Service (also known as the Integrated Therapy Service)

The Occupational therapy and Physiotherapy Rehabilitation Service is available for all adults over the age of 16, registered with a Cornish GP who:

  • have long term or chronic conditions
  • require rehabilitation following surgery or major trauma
  • have had a severe medical event such as a head injury
  • require therapy or equipment support to maintain independence
  • are terminally ill

Referrals for rehabilitation, home adaptation and/or equipment come from a range of health and social care professionals. People referred will be assessed by an appropriate therapist or team of workers who will recommend treatment and agree a goal orientated plan with the service user.

The rehabilitation service carries out home assessments, where appropriate, and modifications to the patient’s home or the provision of equipment can assist towards a faster recovery.
