The Telerehab Toolkit is evolving

We're at the start of our journey, working with patients and practitioners to ensure that we provide the best information available at this time. Keep visiting our pages over the coming months and you will see changes as we take on board feedback from our stakeholders.

If you would like to share your constructive thoughts and suggestions we'd love to hear them.
We would also like to hear from people (patients and practitioners) who have used the toolkit: 
  • How did you use it? 
  • Has it been useful for you? 
  • Has it changed your practice?
