At David Roberts Physiotherapy we follow the belief that we are only as strong as the individuals we employ, below Lesley Raw writes about life working for David Roberts Physiotherapy...
" I started for the company almost 3 years ago and have not looked back. There are so many development and work opportunities within the company that you would struggle to find elsewhere. Within 3 months of my employment I had been promoted to clinic manager and I have had the opportunity to work both abroad and in this country with sports and tv personalities including Freddie Flintoff and Lawrence Dallaglio.
In a nutshell, work for me is autonomous; with support on hand when needed. Varied; keeping it fresh and enjoyable and a place to meet and work with great people.I love my work for a number of reasons; firstly, every day is different. You never know who will walk through the door. In one day you could potentially treat acute injuries, whiplash injuries, chronic pain patients, do some gym rehabilitation and then do a home visit!
Secondly; the relationship that I have with the other members of staff within the clinics is second to none. Not only do we have a laugh at work but all of the staff are so supportive and approachable that it makes the clinics a great place to be. Finally, working in an environment where long term management is key is very rewarding and satisfying. With the use of physio gyms within the clinics, massage and sports therapists, Pilates classes, counsellors and cognitive behavioural therapists and great links with local Consultants, I am able to refer patients onwards, knowing that they will receive the best and most appropriate care possible.
