Care & Support
Facilities & Services
The Chartered Physiotherapists at St. Luke's Hospital are experienced in the assessment and treatment of a wide range of physical problems that patients may have as a result of their cancer or its treatment. They are all senior physiotherapists who have chosen to specialize in working with people with cancer.
The aim of the physiotherapist working in oncology is to maximize a person's physical ability, function and independence and to improve their sense of well-being.
Patients are seen on both an inpatient and outpatient basis.
