WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

  • Since working with The Specialist Health Centre I feel great - the programme has been a total gain for me and given back my life. What’s nice too is that people will stop me and tell me how different I look and that I walk much better.

    Kathy Jenkins
  • I have found The Specialist Health Centre to be very helpful and informative, all the staff are particularly friendly and attentive. The twice weekly workouts in the gym can at times be hard but with the focused instructions are always enjoyable. Each workout session is different so never becomes boring. The gym sessions are supported by the physiotherapist and nutritionist which I also find a great benefit. A fun thing to do after recovering from chemotherapy.

    Susan Springett
  • I started with The Specialist Health Centre on the CancerCare+ programme in the middle of last year. I found the staff at the SHC to be very knowledgeable of my condition and what would be beneficial and suitable for me. Since then I haven't looked back!!! The staff always encourage me and are very helpful. I can now use my nemesis, the cross trainer, for a lot longer than I did when I first started. My health has improved and I'm also learning about nutrition too, which is another factor in a healthy lifestyle. I'm feeling so much better now having been on the programme and miss it loads when I can't get there for whatever reason. After having surgery, chemo and radiotherapy, all that bad stuff...you need something to get back to a normal life...this was it for me and hope it will be for you too.

  • The expertise of the SHC is impressive and I value their guidance on diet, exercise and lifestyle. I have recovered well from some tough Cancer treatments and this has been hugely helped by being part of the program. The tailored individual support really makes a difference and has enabled me to implement long term changes. I now feel well equipped to make wiser health choices and keep my body in optimum working order. The staff are a positive and encouraging influence and I enjoy working with them. I have also found being with the other clients in gym sessions great fun and motivational.

    Sarah O'Connor
  • By sheer luck I found the Specialist Health Centre (having searched for many years), and I am so glad that I did! All my aspirations for a holistic style of therapy instantly materialised. To me the concept of ‘working in a joined up way’ means therapists/trainers working together as a team, communicating with each other and creating a dynamic programme to ensure maximum results are achieved. We have been working together now for just over six months and have achieved amazing results. My overall health/fitness and wellbeing has improved and I’m determined to delay being a full time wheelchair user for as long as I can. The Specialist Health Centre is pivotal in achieving that goal. My special thanks go to all the team at the Specialist Health Centre for their hard work and commitment and particularly Mike who relentlessly encourages me to work as hard as my body will allow me….. keep up the good work!!
