Get Ahead Physiotherapy

Get Ahead Physiotherapy was set up in 2016 by Kerry Richardson to offer physiotherapy and hydrotherapy for clients of all ages with neurological and complex conditions.

Get Ahead Physiotherapy started out as a specialised community neurological service for babies, adults and children to work alongside local NHS teams and offer much needed ongoing rehabilitation when resources for NHS support were limited.  Due to growing demand, the team grew and other local therapists who shared the same ethos and passion came on board.

 

In June 2023, Kerry opened a specialist neuro-physiotherapy and fitness clinic offering:

  • Dedicated parking and disabled spaces directly outside the clinic doors.

  • Level access to all areas.

  • Disabled access toilet with change table for adults and children, ceiling track hoist and toilet with bar support.

  • Gym equipment expertly chosen to provide accessible exercise opportunities for people of all abilities.

  • Ceiling track hoist and gait trainer in main gym and mat area.

  • Quiet room for one to one sessions.

  • One to one neurological physiotherapy and specialist rehabilitation therapy with highly experienced therapists.

The clinic space is an expansion of our service offering and is a place where clients can meet others people in similar situations, find out about community services, and continue their rehab in a sociable and fun environment.

Home visits are still very much part of what we do as some clients prefer or benefit from working in their own home.

Just as each of our clients are individual and have their own unique goals and dreams; each therapy plan is tailored to suit.

A few words from Kerry:

Becoming a business owner and employer has been a steep learning curve for me. I have sought and taken opportunities for my own development. Over the years, these two pieces of advice have remained a strong focus for me:

 

“The biggest investment in your business is your staff. Look after them.”

“It’s ok to fail. Reflect on why and move on.”

 

With this in mind, here is the ethos for Get Ahead Physiotherapy:

 

All members of the team are valued, and their ideas and opinions will always be listened to. We try to make time each week to share feedback and ideas.
