This new service will deliver a patient-centred experience in specially designed facilities situated on the top floor of the Andover-based home. The rehabilitation programmes are specifically designed for the individual to ensure they fulfil their potential.
To mark the occasion guest speaker Mike Parsons, Founder and Chief Executive of Barchester Healthcare addressed the crowd of professionals and praised the vision and success of the joint partnership so far.
Mike said: “we are always looking for ways to deliver the best possible care for the people who live in (or visit) our homes. Working in partnership with Hobbs, we look forward to providing an outstanding service in Rothsay Grange.”
Other speakers included Helen Hobbs and Nicky Ellis, the chartered physiotherapists who set up Hobbs Rehabilitation. Helen Hobbs said: “this exciting development of a specialist, seven day, neurological inpatient service for Hampshire will be shaped by the people who need our services locally. We are passionate about putting our patients at the centre of their care to reach their full potential for a better quality of life.”
Professor Peter Sonksen, who has a spinal injury, also spoke first-hand about the importance of intensive rehabilitation by expert therapists.
