❝Thank you for providing a high quality specialist Paediatric service. It was proved necessary on this occasion, when the local NHS provision was not able to initially support this child at a crucial time of discharge from hospital.  I was delighted to recommend you to the child's parents given your Paediatric Physiotherapy experience.❞                                                    (Physiotherapist, NHS)
