Putting the Child First - Guidance for Professional Communication

Restructuring of the NHS has changed beyond recognition the professional working arrangements and employment conditions of physiotherapists. With often increasingly fragmented care, the onus of responsibility is on the paediatric physiotherapist to ensure the needs of the child or young person are always put first and that all communication is in their best interests.

This does entail overcoming significant barriers currently and the purpose of this document is to help paediatric physiotherapists collaborate with all types of service provision to produce the best outcomes for the families in their care.
