Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trustl - Paediatric Physiotherapy Dingley Specialist Children’s Centre

Dingley Specialist Community Paediatrics is based at Erlegh House, Earley Gate, Whiteknights Road, University of Reading Campus, Reading RG6 6BZ providing community and inpatient paediatric care to children in the West of Berkshire.

Paediatric physiotherapists are autonomous practitioners, responsible for assessing children’s gross motor skills and functional ability. We provide expert, holistic physical rehabilitation to enable children with injury, disability or illness to reach their potential. We use a range of approaches that are individually tailored to each child’s needs. This may include exercise programmes, postural management, bespoke orthotics, walking aids and other specialist equipment.

We work in partnership with parents and carers, ensuring that they receive advice and support that enables them to support their child’s condition, and alongside other health professionals such as Paediatricians, Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists. We also liaise with teachers and nursery staff.

We are co-located with community paediatricians and other therapists and provide seamless care with our acute Paediatric and Orthopaedic colleagues.

We work alongside Paediatricians and Orthopaedic Consultants providing specialist services such as Botulinum and Gait clinics, Paediatric Orthopaedics and Cystic Fibrosis. We also provide a physiotherapy-led service for children with club feet.

Get there by car, patient parking available – nearest entrance to UoR campus is Earley Gate,  or take Reading Bus Service 19b from Reading town centre to Earley Gate bus stop.
