Spasticity Clinic at St Mary’s Hospital
During your spasticity management appointments, you are seen by a consultant in rehabilitation medicine. Sometimes if you are already seeing an occupational therapist or a physiotherapist, they may also attend the appointment with you.
We are reviewing how these clinic appointments are run, and one area we are considering changing is for a physiotherapist with a specialist understanding of spasticity and movement to join the clinic.
We are running a six-month trial to assess if having both a consultant and a specialist physiotherapist working together in clinic will lead to an improvement in your care.
As part of the trial your feedback is crucial. We would love to hear what you think and would be grateful if you could complete the survey below.
I am filling in this survey as:
- a carer/family member

Do you feel you are on the path to achieving this?
Did the clinic help with this?
