Hand and wrist class

You may be referred into the hand and wrist class by your NHS physiotherapist, to see your NHS physiotherapist will need a referral from your GP, consultant or via NHS staff self referral scheme from occupational health.

Hand/Wrist rehabilitation group is run to help people regain further use of their hand(s). The group will give you the opportunity for more intensive therapy. The programme will consist of an evidence based exercise circuit of 12 stations, each has plenty of equipment to help with your rehabilitation. You will spend a minute and a half at each, then can choose a further 4 stations based upon your preference. Remember to take things at your own pace.

Classes are supervised by a qualified member of staff and managed by a senior physiotherapist.

Classes are held twice weekly, run in a group format, usually you will agree an amount with your physiotherapist at time of booking.

The classes run:

Monday 2.45-3.45pm

Thursday 2.45-3.45pm

We do not run sessions on bank holidays.

The circuits class is run in the hand therapy room which is located on the lower ground floor, entrance 8.

Please report to the physiotherapy outpatients reception on arrival, then take a seat in the reception waiting area and you will be called into the class.

  • If you have been referred directly from the out of plaster clinic will you be asked to arrive ten minutes early to allow the therapist to do some baseline measurements.
  • Following your last session you may be asked to stay for about ten minutes extra.  This will allow the therapist to do some final measurements to assess if the exercises have been effective.
  • Please wear suitably loose clothing for an active class such as t-shirt.
  • If unable to attend please let us know 01202 442121. If we are not informed this will go down as a ‘did not attend’. You will then be discharged and this will be corresponded to your GP.
