Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy: Rapid Recovery

We have been running the rapid recovery programme across both sites since 2008 with excellent results. We have become a centre of reference for other hospitals and are constantly evolving our service.  For more information on the rapid recovery programme please click on the link:

In line with Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines, we are unable at present to offer our face-to-face joint school sessions. In order to continue to work towards a safe and timely discharge post-operation, you will be offered a one-to-one telephone consultation with a member of our Occupational Therapy Team. At this consultation we can address any concerns that you may have, and hopefully answer any questions that may be outstanding. You will also be assessed for any equipment needs that you may have that will benefit you before and after your operation.

Joint School and Covid-19

All the information from joint school is collated within the hip and knee guides. These will be provided to you at pre-assessment but you can also download a version below.



If you have any questions about joint school please contact
