Shoulder class

You may be referred into the shoulder 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.

The programme will consist of a specially designed shoulder exercise circuit, we use plenty of equipment and host a lively event. Classes are held twice a weekly:

Mondays and Fridays at 12.30-1.30pm sessions do not run on bank holidays.

Before your first session please take the time to complete the questionnaire provided by your physiotherapist and bring it with you. Once you have finished your final class session you are asked to complete this questionnaire once again, the difference between your first and last scores are used by our staff to audit the class and provide information to the GP or Occupational health.

In addition there is a patient satisfaction survey which is your opportunity to feedback to us.

The shoulder rehabilitation class takes place in the hand therapy room, therapy services department 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 waiting area and you will be called into the class. The class is managed by a senior physiotherapist and run by a qualified member of staff. 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.
