A new physio service in Bridgend means patients no longer have to see their GP to be referred for specialist treatment.
In January 2019 Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board physiotherapy staff teamed up with Merthyr Tydfil Leisure Centre to provide physiotherapy rehabilitation to patients in the community who need treatment for Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). ACL is one of the key ligaments that help stabilize your knee joint and one of the most beneficial treatments for this type of injury is strength testing.
Patients with back, leg and hip pain are being helped to better health with quick access to expert physiotherapists.
The introduction of a new model for referring children to occupational therapy and physiotherapy in Cwm Taf University Health Board has helped to improve access to services.
Cabinet Secretary for Health & Social Services, Vaughan Gething visited Cwm Taf University Health Board today (June 11) to launch the Welsh Government’s Strategy: ‘A Healthier Wales: Our long-term plan for health and social care’.
