We can still be contacted by phone with any questions, concerns and equipment issues however we are not available to see your children directly.  Please phone us with any queries and we can help to identify if urgent action is required. We can also give telephone advice as needed.  Our therapy office phone number is 0114 2769543. However, we can’t guarantee the answer phone in the office will be checked regularly, particularly if the situation changes. If there is no answer at our office at Norfolk Park and you need same-day assistance please phone one of the therapist’s mobile phone numbers below. Otherwise, please call back the office
the following day or leave an answerphone message. If you require urgent assistance and have had no answer at the office or on therapists’ mobiles, please call Ryegate Therapy Department (see below).
