Attended Rake Lane for physio following a broken ankle. I have a very physical job and I explained this to the physio. She made lots of notes (presumably repeating all the notes already in my records) in a huge room with a curtain between me and the guy next-door, so there was no privacy. She then gave me a print-out of exercises to do at home, whilst she returned to chat to the group of other physios all sitting around. That was it. No massage or manipulation was performed and I was basically left to get on with my own rehab. Not worth attending, and I certainly didn't bother going again. If you want decent physio for fast and effective rehab, unfortunately you will need to pay for it privately. Also, the new carpark payment system is hugely confusing. Why has money been spent replacing the perfectly usable previous system? Why do patients need to pay to park at an NHS hospital anyway?
