    My mentor along with the rest of neurosciences team at the John Radcliffe created a positive and dynamic environment to learn in.

    My confidence, clinical and interpersonal skills have improved greatly since starting this placement.

    The placement exceeded all my expectations and beyond!

    Staff - I was lucky enough to have a fantastic clinical educator who was passionate about facilitating my learning. I felt I was given enough freedom to become part of the team and find my own feet but was never far from support and guidance. All the members of the team were equally supportive and were willing to facilitate my learning. This was a truly outstanding experience that I honestly cannot give justice for with mere words. I was overwhelmed to be able to attend the games and watch so many injured patients completely astonish everybody with their determination and skill following injury. I intend to return to Stoke Mandeville to volunteer at next year’s games!

    The team at this placement is exceptional.

    I felt integrated into the team immediately and they were always patient and willing to answer my questions. I was given formal training tailored to my interests and needs.

    I felt as though I was a part of the team straight away.

    Having my first placement on the neuroscience ward was nerve-wracking because most of the conditions seen on the ward had not been covered on our course yet. However my practice assessor remained patient and taught me about the different conditions and surgeries that commonly came onto the floor. He also challenged me to think outside of the box when it came to rehab in the gym, which in the end, really helped me grow as a student Physiotherapist.
