Who delivers post operative physiotherapy for your patients?

The Horder Centre delivers every part of the patient pathway including pre-assessment, elective surgery where your patient will follow an enhanced recovery programme tailored especially for them, post operative physiotherapy which includes individually tailored exercise programmes and an outpatient follow-up appointment with their consultant.

What post operative care does The Horder Centre provide?

Post operative patients are encouraged throughout to contact The Horder Centre should they have any difficulties or concerns following their surgery so we can assess and where necessary re-admit them. However if a patient should be admitted to their local hospital due to complications following their episode of care at The Horder Centre under PBR rules the local hospital will re-charge this re-admission episode of care back to the The Horder Centre, so they do not absorb this cost on our behalf.
