At Spiral Health CIC we are proud to be a Social Enterprise where our employees take an active part in running our Company. Our flagship Nurse Led 40-bed Rehabilitation Unit is widely recognised as a Centre of Excellence for intermediate care.
..........but this is just the start. We believe that great improvements can be made across the entire intermediate care pathway between hospital and home. We have lots of great ideas and are working with other Community Organisations so that people can access the help needed to stay independent at home longer and receive more personalised support when extra help is needed.
Jean Wilson - Patient
"I am a bit of a character here and everybody knows me ! The camaraderie is wonderful. I go in the gym every day and the staff are very helpful - they don't shout but really encourage you. After 3 weeks I feel stronger and much more confident and am looking forward to getting back home."
Norah - Patient
"The staff are lovely and want to toughen you up a bit. It helps keep you independent and that's what I want."
Lynda - Reception
"My Job here is really varied. It's not like working in a traditional hospital environment. Relaxed, homely with lots of interaction.......not too big and you have the chance to get to know everyone. Being a CIC means lots more say and the chance to see our own ideas into fruition."
Alan Pearson - Occupational Therapy Instructor
"When I used to play rugby it was always about knocking people down and now I'm doing the exact opposite...... as a multidisciplinary Team we get people back on their feet and ready to get home to a better quality of life."
Jennifer Frary - Staff Nurse
"I have been a Staff Nurse here for 3 Years. I enjoy being able to spend time getting to know each patient to being able to treat them from a 'holistic' point of view.......we consider everything in their life and don't just treat them 'medically'. We look at their home circumstances, plan with their friends and family and have even arranged for pets to come and visit !"
Natasha Taylor - Health Care Assistant
"I don't do a stereotypical Health Care Assistant job at all ! Working alongside the Therapy Teams means that I get a real variety of more specialist experience. We get to spend time learning how to use equipment and to help patients practice what they have leaned in Physio or Occupational Therapy sessions."
