Testimonials and succesful reviews

Gabriela Pasztor - HCPC Registered Physiotherapists, London

"I applied for HCPC registration in 2012 and I was asked to complete a period of adaptation in MSK, Neurology and Respiratory. For 3 years I was contacting other hospitals, private clinics and private medical facilities – no success, every phone call was a refusal. I was upset and frustrated. Day and night I searched for someone who could help me and I found Monroe Medical NI Ltd.

I was anxious to ring Monroe Medical. From my previous experience I knew that the conversation might be as the other conversations proved to be. However, I was impressed after talking to Monika – A Senior Specialist Physiotherapist and Extended Scope Practitioner. I found her to be kind, supportive and I was treated in a professional manner. She understood my frustrations. The adaptation provided by Monroe Medical was very professional.

I studied all aspects relating to Respiratory, COPD, ACBT, Spirometry and much more. If I had some concerns during the course regarding content etc. Monika was able to provide professional assistance. Also the practical sessions were very well organized. The numerous tests, case studies and exercises undertaken throughout the course, assisted me greatly with the final examination held in Belfast clinic.

Thanks to Monroe Medical for support, kindness and professionalism. 

The skills I learnt regarding Respiratory (measuring Oxygen levels and Active Cycle of Breathing Techniques) I use daily with my work with stroke patients.I recommend MM Ltd to everyone who would like to gain new skills and study towards Adaptation."

"Since I came in to UK I was trying to get registered with HCPC. Unfortunately after very long process HCPC has decided that, in their opinion, I do not have enough experience in respiratory physiotherapy practice. I have been trying to contact different places and different people. And even then without luck. Then Monroe Medical appeared on my path. Monika helped me in theoretical preparation and then in finding the right place in which I could have a practical part. Everything was well organized, contact with Monica was perfect, and the whole process was fitted to my lifestyle. After completing the course I got registered within a few weeks. I recommend Monroe Medical to everyone who struggles with HCPC requirements.
