About us

About Physiotherapy Services at Peninsula Health

Physiotherapy assists people to regain, maintain or improve movements and skills to enable them to function as independently as possible. Physiotherapists use a range of manual skills, exercise prescription and education strategies in their treatments. They work as integral members of multidisciplinary teams.

The Physiotherapy Department consists of more than 100 staff who work in inpatient, outpatient and community settings across Peninsula Health. The Physiotherapy Department has a teaching partnership with Monash University School of Physiotherapy and several other educational institutions to provide undergraduate student clinical placements.

We are committed to excellence in service delivery through the active promotion of quality improvement and research activities and ongoing professional development for our staff.

Physiotherapy for patients in hospital

Physiotherapists provide care to inpatients during their stay. They work alongside medical, nursing and other allied health professionals to assist your recovery and support you to achieve your goals. The nurses and doctors providing your care will refer to the physiotherapy team. If you need to continue working with a physiotherapist after you leave the hospital, this will be arranged for you.
