Create a complimentary therapy service that can respond to the new demand created by more patients attending our new drop in service
We want to provide more staffing hours so more patients receive therapies as we get positive feedback from our patients,“I love the therapy,it does me the power of good.I get a lot of pain in my legs and massages on my legs have really helped”.Therapists also teach carers to give massage at home.
