Acute Medical and Surgical Wards

IAOTAP - Respiratory Team - Introduction
The Acute Therapies Team consist of Occupational Therapy (OT) and Physiotherapy (PT) teams working across a range of acute hospital specialities. The teams at The Whittington Hospital provide short-term rehabilitation to acute and chronically ill adults as well as providing quality post-operative rehabilitation services following surgical procedures.
The teams cover Nightingale, Mercers, Montuschi, Victoria and Critical Care (ITU) wards and will accept referrals for any patients who require assessment and treatment to optimise their function, mobility or condition.

This service provides airway clearance advice and treatment for chronic lung disease and management of breathing pattern disorders. The focus of this treatment is patient centred and focused, with the aim of supporting patients to support their own management. Appointments are currently virtual via telephone or video.
