"A professional rehab team"

About: Nithbank Hospital / Rehabilitation

(as the patient),

The community rehab team at Nithbank hospital Dumfries are just that, a team. From the top down and vice versa. Everyone works together and are the most professional, caring, encouraging, happy and considerate team of people I have ever come across. Nothing is too much for them, they are always smiling and welcoming and yes they make you work hard but that’s what rehabilitation is all about. They have been life savers to me. I have gone from being stuck in a wheelchair and not being able to stand or transfer to walking independently with crutches, with their support and help and patience. I will always be grateful for all they have done for me.
