In the Falklands Islands, physiotherapy is provided by a single therapist working across all specialties including orthopaedics, neurology, elderly care, paediatrics, including children with disabilities, and sports injuries. Under the Memorandum of Understanding with the MOD, the physiotherapist works two days per week at Mount Pleasant Airbase. The majority of the workload is outpatient based, but the physiotherapist is also required to cover the ward. The post carries no on-call commitment.

Currently there is a Speech and Language Therapist and an Audiology Assistant. These two work closely with the schools. All age groups are catered for the service also includes provision of hearing aids.

We have no Occupational therapist or dietician but both visit as needed.
