The Physiotherapy group at Leeds Metropolitan University delivers a BSc (Honours) programme and accelerated Masters degree in Physiotherapy. Both of these course lead to eligibility for membership of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, and registration with the Health Professions Council. In addition we also offer a range of post graduate courses aimed at qualified Physiotherapists for personal and professional development.
Qualified physiotherapists practise in a variety of environments, such as: Hospitals, health centres, GP practices, schools and industry. They work independently, but more often within teams which include other therapists, medical and nursing staff, carers and others.
Physiotherapists work with individuals from diverse backgrounds and with a range of health care needs, from simple back pain through to working with individuals with complex disabilities.
Many Physiotherapists specialise in a particular area, such as: care of the elderly, working with children, respiratory care, neurology, musculoskeletal physiotherapy, and community physiotherapy.
Physiotherapist are employed largely by the National Health Service, but significant numbers also work within private health care, private practice and in other environments.
