HIV rehabilitation

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital provides specialist rehabilitation services for people living with HIV, including Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy.

What we do

HIV is now considered a long-term condition where people living with HIV taking treatments live normal life expectancy, with good quality of life.  However people living longer with HIV may develop other health conditions because of HIV, treatments or ageing. For many people living with HIV, periods of good health may be interrupted by illness, challenges in functioning, or disability. Rehabilitation such as Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy can help people living with HIV remain healthy, recover from illness or episodic disability, and return to an independent and active life at home, at work and in the community.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital provides specialist rehabilitation services for people living with HIV. We offer inpatient Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy for people living with HIV admitted to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. We also offer Outpatient HIV Physiotherapy for people living with HIV who access their HIV care across any of our HIV services.
