Meet The Team

Our team is formed of experienced health care professionals from multidisciplinary backgrounds. The Managing Director of HS Rehab Services, Mr. Hema Thota, is an extended scope practitioner and non-medical prescriber who has been working in the area of integrated musculoskeletal physiotherapy for over 8 years. Building on this, our wide network of highly trained and experienced physiotherapists come from a wide area of practice, including; musculoskeletal physiotherapy, neurological physiotherapy practice, community based rehabilitation, women's health and occupational health. They all work under a single professional code of conduct provided by HS Rehab Services, which is focussed on quality care and patient centred management.

As part of our vision, we are looking forward to the opportunity of being able to work closely with a highly experienced hip and knee orthopaedic consultant. Our practice of having a team of experts from different specialties ensures a holistic approach to patient management within an optimal time frame, where identifying the most suitable referral pathway and providing timely treatment intervention is the priority. With provision for joint injections and consultant opinions, we strive to make patient journey easier and their treatment outcome better.

Our team of occupational health experts have extensive experience of working in areas of injury prevention. Using early identification of causes for injury within the workplace and rectifying these to safeguard employees' safety and provide necessary training and ergonomic education. Another sector of expertise includes occupational rehabilitation, which involves conducting a detailed functional capacity evaluation and safe return to work through a functional restoration programme.

An expert panel of auditors, senior management and admin team forms the backbone of our service delivery model. Their experience of working closely with different insurance companies, solicitors and networks of other private companies makes them extremely competent in dealing with clients, identifying their service requirements and meeting their expectations. Auditors are well trained in identifying any patterns of gaps in service provision, investigating and rectifying them in a timely manner for quality assurance. The HS Rehab team is our driving force towards achieving our aim of extended quality patient care and satisfaction..
