Frequently Asked Questions

Does my child need a referral to Therapy Stars?

No. Your child does not need a referral in order to have a Therapy Stars assessment and treatment.

Can my child receive NHS physiotherapy alongside treatment from Therapy Stars?

Yes. Your child is entitled to receive treatment from a range of resources. We will, however, ask for your consent to liaise closely with their NHS therapist in order to ensure that we can discuss treatment and similar goals for your child.

Will you discuss/share information about my child with anyone else?

Probably! It is important that we have the most up to date information about your child. This may involve liaising with their GPs, Consultants and other healthcare professionals. It may also include discussing their progress with Education staff. However, we will always ask for your consent and explain to you why it is necessary to share information about your child at that time.

Do you have a waiting list?

No. At present we do NOT have any waiting list, so you and child will be offered an appointment as soon as is mutually convenient.

How long will my child need physiotherapy for?

Every child is different. This will depend on their level of need and progress. There is no set timescale for therapy input.

Can my child access other therapies?

Yes! Although at present Therapy Stars is unable to offer other therapies, such as Occupational Therapy or Speech and Language Therapy, we do have links to other Therapists in the area and may be able to offer you some advice. Please contact us for more information.

If you would like to discuss in detail any problems or concerns that you have about your child and you think we can help please contact us.
