Private Healthcare Awards 2021

GHP / 2021 Private Healthcare Awards 7 , Tees Neuro Physiotherapy is an award-winning clinic for specialist neurological rehabilitation for adults living with the impacts of a neurological condition or injury. We find out more about the company and the driving ambition of Clinical Director Victoria Fairhall and her team, which empowers continuous innovation towards better, more effective care for patients. Most Dedicated Neurological Physio Rehabilitation Clinic - North East England & Rehab Engineering Service of the Year – UK Tees Neuro Physiotherapy Ltd is a leading provider of specialist neurological rehabilitation for adult clients seeking neurological physiotherapy intervention and treatment following the diagnosis of a long-term neurological condition or a neurological injury. A team of experienced Specialist Neurological Physiotherapists and Specialist Rehabilitation Assistants, Tees Neuro Physiotherapy is dedicated to delivering client-centred, goal-driven therapy that evolves according to the needs of clients and takes them on a lifelong journey of rehabilitation. The team is highly trained in the management of all neurological conditions, including brain and spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis and stroke, and has a special interest in spasticity management, and functional motor disorders, as well as being Advanced Bobath trained. With the support of clinical associates such as an occupational therapist, orthotist, and rehabilitation engineer, the team at Tees Neuro Physiotherapy is able to provide comprehensive care. Moreover, its capabilities and offering of treatments, which already incorporates assessment, hydrotherapy, orthotics, personal training and more, is growing. In the last year, the clinic has seen its team and facility Feb21073 grow despite the pandemic, taking on and resolving every challenge that has arisen through dedication and hard work. The clinic has also been enhanced by the addition of innovative technology such as the TyroStation, which enables assessment of upper and lower limbs, as well as reporting and therapy that is suitable for a wide range of patients. The TyroStation is an innovative, immersive and fun way of delivering therapy of a higher intensity that sees effective results. The clinic has also developed its Rehabilitation Engineering Service in collaboration with the Clinical Associates, A. Jackson of OT Rehab North East and M Hirst of Rehab Engineering Solutions. The new model is unique in the independent physiotherapy sector and offers a bespoke modification service to patients who require products that are not commercially available to resolve a clinical or practical issue. Dealing mainly in wheelchair and seating modification, the service is a testament to the customer- focused approach employed by Tees Neuro Physiotherapy. Even in the midst of the pandemic that has pervaded the last year, the clinic has remained committed to its client-centric philosophy. Indeed, as a direct result of the difficulties in accessing statutory service provision or the lack of face to face care in community and outpatient services for those needing neurological physiotherapy, the clinic has seen an increase in the number of self-referring clients and post- acute hospital discharges. Tees Neuro Physiotherapy has been able to continue offering face to face services for all those who needed it, despite the challenges of Covid-19 that manifested in everything from furloughing staff to managing risk assessments to adapting professional policies. Moreover, between March and July 2020, Clinical Director, Victoria Fairhall, played her role in supporting a local neuro rehab facility that was supporting local hospital discharges. The team at Tees Neuro Physiotherapy is looking forward to being able to offer the full spectrum of its face to face services to clients again soon. The clinic is also continuing to grow, with an anticipated move to a larger location in 2022 that will accommodate the expanding team and its growing collection of innovative technology and equipment for delivering higher standards of rehab for its clients. These are exciting plans that will be put into action following Victoria’s time out on maternity leave. In the meantime, she and her team are able to celebrate their acknowledgement at the Private Healthcare Awards 2021. It is a fitting tribute to all the hard work that has enabled continued successes throughout an undoubtedly trying year, both on the part of the clinical team and their patients, whose motivation and determination on a daily basis is the driving force behind the clinic’s constant innovation. As Victoria says, “[It] really does make us feel that we have the best job in the world and spurs us on to keep rehab innovative and exciting to provide the best possible experiences for our clients.” Contact: Victoria Fairhall Company: Tees Neuro Physiotherapy LTD Web Address: Tees Neuro Physiotherapy LTD
