TESTIMONIAL JUNE 2022.
I am a 59 year old man who was working as a local GP.
I sadly had a stroke about 9 months ago which left me with a significant left sided weakness and associated mobility problems. The NHS was excellent at providing my acute care (Mechanical Thrombectomy) but was unable to provide the required level of rehabilitation that I needed to attain my optimal recovery potential.
I came to BWT for an intensive rehabilitation program, being seen 3 to 4 times each week, some sessions were in my own home and some in the specialist clinic in Parkstone.
The care I have received has been outstanding and my response to their rehabilitation program has been – in the words of my own GP -“Miraculous”. I have returned to walking my dog in the countryside, sailing in the harbour and most recently, jogging.
I was treated by Linda, Helen, and Tom (who was also able to provide a diagnostic ultrasound service when needed). The whole team worked seamlessly together for my treatment and also provided the necessary level of psychological support and motivation which I needed after such a devastating experience. I will remain forever grateful to the BWT team for facilitating my return to a normal life.
John. Neuro-rehabilitation patient.
