Therapy Services


Physiotherapists work with patients who have been affected by injury, illness or disability to assess and help restore movement and function to as near normal as possible. We also work to promote health and wellbeing and empower patients to manage their own conditions.

Speech and Language Therapy

The Adult Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) Service provides care to patients who have speech, language, communication and/or swallowing difficulties.

Nutrition and Dietetics

Our Nutrition and Dietetics Service is based at Harrogate District Hospital and provides inpatient services as well as outpatient clinics and group sessions across Harrogate, Ripon and the rural district area. We work in areas where nutrition and diet plays a role in the treatment of a condition and advise the Trust on the nutritional standards and specifications for the patient food service.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists work with people of all ages to help them overcome the effects of illness, injury, disability or accident and enable them to lead full and satisfying lives as independently as possible.
