- Cardiovascular (chronic heart disease, rehabilitation after heart attack)
- Respiratory (asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis).
Physiotherapists working with Kent Occupational Therapy
Physiotherapists working with us are registered with their governing body, The Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP) and are also with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). This national regulator holds a register of health and care professionals who meet their standards of proficiency and who are bound by their standards of conduct, performance, and ethics.
The title ‘Physiotherapist’ is a legally protected title by law and only those registered with the HCPC can use it. Registered physiotherapists also undertake continuing professional development to ensure that they are aware of new clinical developments and research that can support and enhance their practice.
