Injured service personnel will benefit from a £230,000 upgrade to facilities at Faslane.

The primary care rehabilitation facility was officially reopened on yesterday after a refurbishment which will increase its capacity to help members of the armed forces to recover from injury and illness.

Situated in HM Naval Base Clyde’s Sportsdrome, the facility underwent large scale works to reconfigure the space, including the creation of confidential areas for consultations, and upgrades to improve infection control and prevention.

Cutting the ribbon on the refurbishment was Colonel Sharon Findlay, regional clinical director for Defence Primary Healthcare in Scotland, and Captain of HMS Neptune, Captain Nick Gibbons.

Principal Medical Officer at HMNB Clyde, Surgeon Commander Mike Russell, said: “This refurbishment will allow many more service people to access the highest quality physiotherapist and rehabilitation instructor-led care and equipment.

“It will help in patients’ recovery from injury and illness and return them to fitness so that they can continue to support our defence mission.”

Gillian More, lead physiotherapist and facility manager, who overseen the refurbishment work said: “We typically deal with over 500 new patients a year with a wide range of injuries and illnesses.

“We are delighted to have this facility and I cannot emphasise enough what a difference it makes to patient care, especially for some of our long-term patients.”

The primary care rehabilitation centre has five private consultation rooms and a gym which can cater to all levels of fitness and varying injuries.

A team of five physiotherapist and three exercise remedial instructors work at the facility.  Patients are offered a detailed assessment and treatment plan tailored to their individual needs with the focus on exercise-based rehabilitation.
