The Role Of Our Rehabilitation Assistants – Surrey Hills Rehab

Surrey Hills Rehab are pleased to introduce you to our Rehabilitation Assistants, who are a fundamental part of the service we provide. We are fortunate to offer a wide range of knowledge and experience from within our NeuroRehabilitation team.

If you attend SHR you may meet them either in our exercise groups or 1:1 sessions, either at our Rehabilitation studio at Smithbrook Kilns or if required, in your own home.

Having these wonderful assistants with all their specialist skills and experience allows SHR to keep Rehabilitation costs down for our clientele alongside the wealth of knowledge from the wider team. A HCPC Registered Physiotherapists initially assesses everyone and prescribes and reviews the appropriate Rehabilitation programme.

All are Members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and supervised and trained by Kim Wilson, Clinical Director NeuroPhysiotherapist.
