We aim to Recover, Refine, Restore in every treatment we provide
"The Prime Practice have been supporting our hockey and netball girls for the past few seasons and have been outstanding in doing so. They have attended home and away fixtures as well as tournament days to support our developing and elite athletes. The care and professionalism shown by all The Prime Practice staff has been of the highest standards and has been commented on by staff, pupils and parents. They do not just deal with the initial injury but also follow up and provide fantastic rehabilitation advice and sessions for all pupils. Between the pitch side service and the weekly physio the team have built a great rapour with the students and staff and provide a wonderful service that I would recommend to anyone."
Girls Hockey Coach Wycliffe College
"Prime Practice have provided pitch side first aid for our home rugby matches since the start of the 2018-19 academic year. The support offered by Prime Practice has been exceptional, and has quickly become an important part of our match day provision. James and his team have worked hard to quickly develop positive and effective working relationships with our own school nurses. They have tailored their working arrangements to suit our own individual school needs, and have created a first class, bespoke service for Beaudesert. I would have no hesitation in recommending Prime Practice to other schools who are looking to develop their sport's departments medical provision."
Director of Sport Beaudesert Park School
"We have been using PrimePractice for a number of years now and they have been great. In the past we have used them alongside another first aid supplier but we have been so happy with the service and care they provide that we will be using them for all our Prep and Senior school fixtures for the coming academic year.
The care and professionalism shown by all their staff has been of the highest standards and has been commented on by staff, pupils and parents."
Director of Sport Wycliffe College
"Mike and Hannah have been fabulous going way beyond there job and providing an excellent service, we have had total confidence in both of them and have given great advise, they both have become well respected and feel a part of the club even after this short time, thank you to both."
Old Cryptians RFC, Chairman
"James provided pitch side for both Male and Female age grade and Adult teams, he is diligent, professional and his ability to connect with players young and old is what sets him apart from other medical providers. His work has been exemplary over the past 4 season he has provided medical cover for the GRFU, that he now heads up all my medical provision such is the trust and respect I have for him. If you want pitch side cover for any team of any age James should be your first point of call."
Representative Rugby Chairman Gloucestershire RFU
"I was delighted with the experience and treatment that I received. I used to see James as part of an elite performance programme, but after moving to America to pursue my athletics career I need some sports therapy when I am back in the country, and I am so pleased that James is able to offer this to a high standard at the clinic in Stroud.
James is a knowledgable therapist who is responsive to my needs as an athlete. His clean, tidy and professional environment made for a relaxed and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend James and his team at The Prime Practice "
