Happy 70th Birthday to the NHS!

NHS 70th Birthday Bristol Neurophysio
Posted 05/07/18

It's 70 years today since the NHS was set up in the UK. 

We're incredibly lucky in the UK to have access to free healthcare and whilst there is no denying that the NHS is facing huge challenges right now, perhaps more than ever before, it should also be celebrated and recognised for delivering the fantastic service that it does. 

Many of us in the team have a lot to be thankful to the NHS for; 

From a professional point of view, the majority of us have spent many years working for the NHS before joining the team at Bristol Neurophysio and it has given us valuable skills and experience, which we carry with us.  We continue to work closely alongside our colleagues in the NHS in order to provide our clients with as holistic, high-quality and joined-up an experience as possible.  

From a personal point of view, it has saved the lives of individuals within the team on more than one occasion as well as the lives of those closest to us. It has also given many of us friendships that will last a lifetime.  

So, to the NHS and everyone who works in it, both past and present; Happy Birthday and thank you for everything you do for all of us in the UK. 

Some kind words

I had a Stroke 18 months ago and only contacted Bristol Neurophysio six weeks ago. I had a prompt response and appointment made for the following week, unfortunately I had to cancel this due to illness. Kirsty was extremely understanding and rescheduled immediately. I have had three sessions since and am extremely pleased with my progress towards my wish to walk, for the first time I feel this will happen. It is hard work and tiring but Kirsty is always cheerful and encouraging and each time makes the tasks achievable. At last someone understands what it's like for me and takes time to explain how my Stroke has affected me. Watch this space as I'm sure I will be posting a new testimonial when I am walking again.
