We work to assess your mental and physical wellbeing, help to provide strategies to optimise your physical activity, independence in day to day tasks and activities that mean the most to you at all stages of your illness.
After we receive a referral for you, we will assess you holistically and work closely with other teams to help you reach your goals.
