I was extremely satisfied with the first appointment I had. It was booked very quickly and you were very flexible. For example, contacting me via email and text, this was very useful. The physiotherapist was very professional. I valued being listened to and having my concerns/aims discussed. It was well structured and clear goals set. The session really aided my confidence and I really appreciate all you all did.

Christine came daily to look after my father who suffered with Parkinson's and terminal cancer. She adapted her regime to his changing needs and was highly sensitive to his energy levels and ability to benefit from her skills. Despite his failing health she succeeded in reversing some of his physical decline. Her pleasant demeanour was soothing and made the experience a pleasure.
I am fully satisfied with the service. Your communication and flexibility have been excellent. James is also excellent. He was very patient and thorough in his questions to my father-in-law. His first attempts at getting him to do a few exercises were also very good. I am very happy and relieved that the physiotherapy looks like it will be effective in getting my father-in-law out of bed and able to take a few steps to sit in his chair.
