Development of Botulinum Toxin-A service in Fife, Scotland

I wanted to highlight the cost savings gained following a review and change of service delivery to children with focal spasticity in a district general hospital.  The purpose of the review and change was to improve the service we provided to children and their families in terms of timeliness on intervention, proximity to home and follow-up with known clinicians. 

Although the data is from 2014, we continue to inject less that 10% of our children under a general anaesthetic compared to 78% in 2009.

This service is led and delivered by a physiotherapist working in an extended role – initially Clinical Specialist, now Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner with support from Orthopaedic and Neurology consultants.
