APCP Private Practitioners' Directory

APCP will soon be launching Find a Children's Physiotherapist - an online Directory of private paediatric physiotherapists.

Users will be able to search for a paediatric physiotherapist by postcode or practice / practitioner name, and will be able to filter results by conditions treated , interventions / treatments offered, and treatment location.

It is hoped that this new Directory will provide parents and carers with a useful search facility to enable them to find an experienced paediatric physiotherapist.

Promoting Best Practice for Children

All babies, children and young people are important.  They each have their own unique personality and potential.  They deserve the best possible care and nurture to support their health and development.  

APCP believes that physiotherapists who work with children should have the right skills and expertise to deliver appropriate care and best practice for the children and families that they work with.

A paediatric physiotherapist should have a good understanding of ...

  • child development
  • childhood diseases and conditions that may impact on development and well being
  • therapeutic interventions that enable and optimise development and well being
  • the need to place the child at the centre of planning
  • the impact that having a sick or disabled child has on family life
  • how to keep children safe
  • how to ensure that children and young people make choices
  • how to develop their own skills and practice
  • how to develop services in line with Government guidance committed to improving quality and life chances for children

Physiotherapists wanting to enter a listing in the APCP Private Practitioner's Directory should be able to confirm their competency to treat children, and so will either be highly experienced (with at least five year's experience of working with children) or working under the guidance and supervision of a highly experienced Children’s Physiotherapist.
