Background & Qualifications

Andy is one of the Devon's few physiotherapists to have trained to Second level Advanced Course in the Bobath Concept.

Qualified since 1983, he's worked in a variety of NHS settings, from Stroke Units to Neuro-surgical intensive care, and in the private sector more recently at the world renowned Manchester Neurotherapy Centre.
Shardi must be regarded as the county's most advanced physiotherapist working in the field of Spinal Cord Injuries. With extensive experience in NHS, Charitable and private sectors, her most important experience in the field was a long period at the Stoke Mandeville Spinal Injuries Unit.
