"marvelous service from the physiotherapist and assistance practitioner"

About: Nottingham West / Primary care rehab & falls service

(as the patient),

I’ve had a marvelous service from the physiotherapist and assistance practitioner. I don’t think I would’ve got so far forward without their help in strengthening my leg following a hip replacement. John Rowe couldn’t be any nicer.

The leg exercises I was given really helped. It’s only been three months but I’m doing well, and I’ve now been left to my own devices.

Jessica came and helped set up equipment around the house. She even helped me get on the bus – I was scared because it wasn’t long since my hip replacement, but it was fine.

They also talked me through using the commode, and told me how to get up properly.

They’ve been such a help!
