Western Health offers Physiotherapy services at Footscray Hospital, Sunshine Hospital, Williamstown Hospital and Hazeldean, in a range of specialised areas. The Physiotherapy department works in close association with other health care professionals to provide comprehensive and holistic care. We are committed to providing clinical and academic excellence in physiotherapy care across all ages. We are a clinical teaching hospital and associated with The University of Melbourne in providing education and mentoring for under graduate and post graduate students.
We work Monday to Friday 8am to 4.30pm (limited weekend/public holiday service).
Referrals are usually made by medical and allied health staff within Western Health. Patients cannot self refer and we do not accept GP referrals for inpatient services. If you have been referred to physiotherapy we encourage your attendance and active participation to get the greatest benefits.
If you are unable to attend your appointment you must give us a minimum of 24 hours notice when cancelling the appointment. Inconsistent, late or failed attendance can lead to discharge from physiotherapy. Please contact us for further information on this policy.
Please tell us when your appointment is made if you need an interpreter.
