OUTREACH SERVICES (DOMICILIARY SERVICES) OF OUR PHYSIOTHERAPY DEPARTMENT:
Domiciliary Physiotherapy service provides rehabilitation and self- management strategies for the patients within their own accommodations. Our physiotherapy department aims to help people recover their movements as much as possible through teaching and helping the patients to engage in movement, exercise and therapy techniques. We have a highly qualified and trained staff of physiotherapists, who use manual therapy, electrotherapy, exercise and advice to help restore the movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. A treatment plan is also formed, based on patient centered goals. We have kept economical charges for the domiciliary physiotherapy, around 800 rupees per session / visit (30 minutes).
We have started the domiciliary physiotherapy services at our Clifton Campus and we intend to have that service at our North Campus as well in the future.
DOMICILIARY SERVICES OF NURSING DEPARTMENT
We have started home-based (domiciliary) nursing services at our Clifton campus at present and we also intend to extend it to our North campus. Dr. Ziauddin Hospital has a team of dedicated, senior and highly qualified Histo-Pathologists, Chemical Pathologists, Haematologists, Microbiologists, Molecular biologists, Interventional Radiologists, Ultrasonologists, Physiotherapists, working with trained Technologists under internationally recognised quality assurance programmes such as (College of American Pathology) CAP and ISO.
