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

Our daughter’s renal failure means that she is delayed with standing and walking at 2 and half years of age. We first started seeing Jules a few months back for an intense block of physiotherapy to build the strength and skills needed for her to eventually stand and walk.  It was really important that the physiotherapist specialised in paediatrics and could work alongside the NHS physiotherapists we also see. Jules immediately put us at ease with her friendly and professional approach and has built a good, trusting relationship with our daughter.  She uses play as a way to get our daughter to engage with the therapy.  Our daughter has really enjoyed all her physio sessions to date and we have seen a notable improvement in her movement.  She has begun to pull herself up and can climb up small steps as well as shuffle down stairs in a controlled manner!
