On 21st August our Charity Manager Lucy Doig, and Co-Vice Chairs Virginia Morck and Jo Soden, were delighted to attend a demonstration of the specialist gym equipment that the Friends funded last year in the Outpatient Physiotherapy department. Senior physiotherapists Barry Crane and Siobhan Burnett and their colleagues showed us how the equipment worked and explained how it would benefit the 200 patients per week who use the gym. The team passed on a message from one grateful patient: “Thank you for a pain free physiotherapy! I am very grateful and thankful for the blood restriction training. I am hoping many more patients will be able to use this amazing service the physiotherapy department now provides”.
Thank you to Barry and Siobhan for inviting us, and to George Vasilopoulos for the photos!
