Specialist and dynamic care

To help us provide excellent patient care, we make sure that our staff are highly skilled, and the quality of our clinical practice remains at a high level. To help us do this, we:

  • have regular teaching and training sessions to update our staff on developments in their field – all based on the latest available research.
  • contribute to the development and teaching of physiotherapy students, and offer work-based placements for students from Northumbria and Teesside universities. We also work with the universities and contribute to teaching on a larger scale.
