When, like so many people, I had a stroke which left me unable to walk or to use my left arm and hand, I was lucky enough to be treated by Clare Fraser and it was only through her care and expertise that I am now walking and able to have more use of my arm and hand than I could have possibly imagined.
The effects of something like a stroke can not only be physically devastating, but also mentally traumatic in the sudden transition from being fit and active to being helpless.
Central to the treatment I received from Clare and her team, was not only the fact that they could successfully correct so much of the damage I had suffered, but their ability to connect with those they are treating, and in giving us the power to help ourselves whilst being helped. It seems to me that this is not just essential to any kind of recovery, but makes it possible for those of us who have suffered a traumatic change in our life to take back some control over our condition as well as receiving the best possible treatment. Thank you so much for your care and expertise.
