About Remedy Healthcare

Remedy Healthcare is the UK’s only provider of private Residential rehabilitation services that are dedicated to victims of Musculoskeletal major trauma. Our model of rehabilitation was created to ensure early intervention, expert clinical care, collaborative working and continuity of care throughout the recovery pathway. As such, it is entirely within the framework of the recently published NICE Guidelines on Rehabilitation after traumatic injury. We offer assessment clinics and community-based programmes for individuals located in the South East of England but are also able to offer National access to our Residential rehabilitation programmes.

Our Residential Rehabilitation programmes

Remedy Healthcare provides specialist, high-intensity, musculoskeletal Residential Rehabilitation programmes from the Kingston Rehabilitation Centre (KRC), which are suitable for individuals at certain key stages of their recovery pathway. The programmes usually last between 2 and 4 weeks and includes the following:

  • 18-20 hours of 1:1 medical & therapy input per week
  • Inter-disciplinary care led by a Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine, with physiotherapy, occupational therapy (OT), exercise rehabilitation instruction (ERI), clinical psychology and 24 hour nursing & personal care support
  • Rehabilitation programmes include specialist Hydrotherapy; pain management; scar & oedema management; sleep, energy and fatigue management; indoor & outdoor functional tasks & mobility.
  • A typical week’s programme looks like this:

Background to Remedy Healthcare

Remedy Healthcare was established in 2016 to meet the increasing need for specialist rehabilitation programmes for individuals following complex musculo-skeletal injury. The Remedy Healthcare model was created by Dr Ian McCurdie and Mrs Allyson Ballard and is based largely on their shared experience of working with injured military personnel at DMRC Headley Court. As a service, Remedy Healthcare are very aspirational and will work very hard with our clients to enable them to reach an optimal clinical outcome.  Our programmes are client focuses and tailored to each individual.

Our specialist clinical team includes Medical, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Clinical Psychology and Exercise Rehabilitation Instruction.

Remedy Healthcare offers a ‘one stop shop’ approach to rehabilitation provision. A single referral to Remedy Healthcare allows access to the specialist clinical team which includes Medical, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Clinical Psychology and Exercise Rehabilitation Instruction.

Our clinical team is led by Consultants in Rehabilitation Medicine and has significant collective expertise in rehabilitation following complex trauma, with the majority of our clinicians having worked within military rehabilitation. We strongly believe in a collaborative approach and have partnered with various other companies, including private prosthetic providers and residential facilities to enable exceptional care throughout all of our service provision.

All of our programmes begin with an assessment clinic, which is attended by the patient and the core clinical team. We strongly encourage a ‘joined-up’ approach to our intervention and therefore promote other members of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT), such as the case manager, solicitor and insurer to also attend these clinics either face to face or remotely. A single report is provided within 7 business days following the clinic outlining the patient’s multi-disciplinary rehabilitation needs, recommended interventions and associated costs, thus allowing early intervention to commence as soon as funding is agreed.

In addition to the Residential rehabilitation programmes, we deliver community-based rehabilitation programmes in a variety of settings, which allows the Remedy Healthcare team to provide rehabilitation throughout the entirety of an individual’s recovery pathway from ‘ward to work’. Our community intervention can be completed in the patient’s own home, local gym/park or clinic space.

  • Traumatic or elective amputation – upper, lower & multi-limb
  • Complex fractures – pelvic, long bone (including ORIF, external fixation & limb salvage), spinal (without SCI)
  • Significant joint disruption/instability, including knee, ankle, shoulder
