HYDROTHERAPY TEAM HELPS MORE PATIENTS THAN EVER BEFORE!
This year our Hydrotherapy team celebrate one year in its new purpose built Hydrotherapy Centre, with the news that the team has treated a record number of patients in 2012!
In the last 12 months, the team has helped more than 700 patients back to health.
The AHT has offered hydrotherapy to cats and dogs since 2005, however the state-of-the-art Hydrotherapy Centre - one of the only centres in the country to offer both a hydrotherapy swimming pool and water treadmill in one purpose-built building – officially opened for business in December 2011.
To top off a fantastic year the team has also been recognised with a Hawksmoor ‘Dedicated to Excellence’ Centre Award. The award is presented to centres who demonstrate outstanding commitment to their staff through providing the opportunity to gain hydrotherapy qualifications.
The team of hydrotherapists comprising of Head of Hydrotherapy Jo Handley-Howard, Sam Gould, Gemma Dorling, Gemma Reid and Laura Smith, now has more than 27 years’ of experience between them.
Jo Handley-Howard, said: “This year the whole team has undergone further training to keep us up-to-date with the latest techniques being developed and advised, which has earned us the Dedicated to Excellence Centre Award.
“It’s great that the level of expertise we provide, and our dedication to excellence, has been recognised by Hawksmoor. The award is proudly displayed within the centre. We have treated 700 cases this year, a number we’re particularly proud of given that everyone in our Hydrotherapy team also has other nursing duties to fulfil in order to help many other AHT patients who need our care. We’re all looking forward to helping even more cases back onto the road to recovery in 2013.”
