From September 2014 a brand new NEUROLOGICAL SERVICE will be available. A first in Northern Ireland we have recruited some of the top Physiotherapists in the areas of neurological rehabilitation. Patients who no longer have regular access to existing NHS services and/or who wish to receive 6 week blocks of intensive rehab are welcome to avail of this new service.
Further details will be posted on this page over the next few weeks.
If you wish to enquire please feel free to call or drop in to the clinic.
