    Children's Integrated Therapy services bring together a number services into an integrated model of provision at locality level.

    These services include Children's Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Physiotherapy services. We also deliver support to children who have individual packages of care due to their very complex health needs.

    Our aim is to provide a consistently high quality service that is child and family centred for children who have additional needs that may require support from one or more therapy or nursing services. We work in partnership with hospital paediatric services, schools, social care services and other agencies to deliver effective multi-agency care for these children.

    What makes us unique?

    We are one of the largest children's herapy Services in the country. Our size and scale achieves two key benefits; firstly within our workforce we have expert specialist clinicians who are able to advise and develop practice across Lancashire, ensuring we are delivering the highest possible standards of care, embracing the latest research and continually improving and advancing practice. Secondly we are able to deliver high quality services at competitive prices.

    Our other unique strength is our co-producing leadership structure which ensures joint decision making between clinicians and managers at all levels of the service, resulting in high clinical quality and a clear focus on the needs of the children, young people and their families. Also key to our success is our commitment to partnership working with both families and other agencies at locality level.

    We have taken the step of developing integrated teams within each of our localities. This means that not only do we deliver excellent clinical care but we do it in an integrated way that is personalised around the needs of children and their families.

    Future Focus

    We want to work with partners to deliver integrated cross-sector working for young people from birth through to the age of 25. Another key aim is to further grow the provision of care at home. Clinical pathways and packages of care are being developed to ensure that the best possible evidence based care is delivered in a timely manner. This is enabled by having multidisciplinary teams working with partners.


    We offer a range of training courses. These are free to parents and have a small cost for professionals.
