Support for developing and elite athletes

"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."

Recommending Prime Practice to other schools

"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."

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."

"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 "
