"Great service and great parking at Walkergate Park Neuro-Rehab"

About: Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust

(as the patient),

Great start - arrived at Walkergate Park to find ample disabled parking and, in a stroke of genius, the parking bays are actually covered by a roof. So no hurrying to get the wheelchair out of the car to avoid getting too wet. Brilliant.

Was seen on time, saw physio Jill who was friendly, thorough, knowledgeable and professional and set me up with a series of physio sessions to try to realign my posture.

Then went straight on to be seen, without prior appointment, by the driving assessment people who are going to modify my car to make adjustments for my recently shortened right leg. Brilliant stuff. On days like this I'm reminded how lucky we are to have the NHS.
