As more and more children with Cerebral Palsy in the UK are undergoing Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) surgery we are very aware of the ever-increasing need for high quality, specialist rehabilitation post-operatively.
I was reminded again yesterday how lucky I am to work with such a fantastic team of people who bring so much skill, experience and passion to Bristol Neurophysio, which enables us to make such a positive difference to the individuals we work with and makes going to work each day a real pleasure.

Kat is a fantastic therapist with extensive experience of working with children with a large range of conditions.
We're very sad to be saying goodbye to a much-loved member of the team, Sheila Watters, who is retiring this month.
