Unfortunately due to the Covid pandemic we are currently suspending our Routine Musculoskeletal Outpatient Physiotherapy Service as our physiotherapists are required to help work on the wards.

Please do not call the department to check as we are working our way through our patient lists. Be assured our Physiotherapy department will be in contact with you to cancel your appointment and place your treatment on hold. When the service can resume we will be in contact.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.


Our physiotherapy department is based at Darent Valley Hospital and offers patients help with restoring their function and movement after illness, injury or disability. Our physiotherapists treat people of all ages, helping them manage their symptoms using a variety of methods to aid recovery. 

Physiotherapy is provided for inpatients at all of our hospital sites and as an outpatient service at Darent Valley Hospital and at the Planned Care Centre, Queen Mary’s Hospital Sidcup.

If you feel that you are suffering from a complaint that could benefit from physiotherapy, you are now able to make a direct referral to the department at Darent Valley Hospital. This offers patients greater choice and faster access to hospital services without the need to visit the GP.
