Looking to the future

“Though it seems like only yesterday, it’s now almost a decade since we embarked upon the project that would become The Clavadel, Guildford.

It was during a business trip to Europe that I witnessed, first hand, the vital role aquatic therapy can play in a post-operative care environment. It immediately became clear to me that the general public lacked readily available access to its equivalent here in the UK. And so, on my return, our journey began.

Now, many years later, I am both proud of the fact that our facility is widely recognised by professionals across the healthcare industry for the exceptional standards of care it offers, and grateful to have won the trust of the many thousands of patients we have supported along their personal journey to wellbeing.

But our story is just beginning…having already built an enviable reputation thanks to the skill, compassion, and tireless dedication of our incredible team, we are pleased to be starting a new chapter. In partnership with leading European healthcare provider VAMED, there are exciting plans underway to further enhance and expand our facilities and range of services.

So, if you find yourself in need of post-operative rehabilitation, then call our reception to arrange a visit. Discover why The Clavadel has become the provider of choice – and be reassured, you’re in safe hands.”

Having a hip replacement or any major operation isn’t just about the surgery, it’s about the recovery.  I had two hips replaced at once which made me particularly immobile and dependent on the incredible care, attention and rehabilitation I received during my three weeks recovery at The Clavadel.

Choosing how and where I recovered was as important as choosing my surgeon and hospital.

My Mother’s hip replacement came about as a result of an  accident.  So having her operation wasn’t a choice.  How she recovered was a choice and one that I would recommend anyone in a similar position to consider.

Even the website didn’t prepare me for the amazement and wonder I felt arriving at The Clavadel – I thought it was a dream!

The facility is fantastic and every day of my stay I thought ‘how lucky I am to be here’. You have a wonderful model for recovery.
