What we do

If you’re recovering from a recent injury or looking to return to sport, our expert team at Circle Rehabilitation can help accelerate your recovery or performance. We provide a premium service to support sportsmen and women with a professional medical team around them in a unique, advanced rehabilitation unit. Our patients include both elite athletes and keen amateurs. Our approach creates a new standard for how rehabilitation is provided in Britain: we’ve brought to the UK best-practice from around the world, by partnering with a major European rehabilitation provider, VAMED. This has allowed us to introduce a major upgrade in the quality of care, with an investment in technology, know-how and luxury that’s simply not readily available elsewhere.

Our team

Our clinical team is led by consultants in sports and exercise medicine with leading expertise in sports rehabilitation. Their experience is across a wide variety of sports at the highest level, including the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. They will bring this wealth of expertise to support you in your goals and recovery from injury. The team are supported by specialist physiotherapists, nutritionists, psychologists, strength and conditioning coaches, podiatrists and sports masseurs. Based at Circle Reading Hospital in Berkshire, we can build a package of support to fit in around you and your everyday life. Everything we do is designed to bring comfort to our patients’ recoveries. We assess patients within 24 hours (and often on the same day):

  1. by telephone or videoconference (Skype, Apple Facetime and WebEx);
  2. in person at our assessment centres in central London, Reading, Bedford, Nottingham or Bath;
  3. as an inpatient at a Circle Rehabilitation Unit.

Circle Reading Hospital offers a five-star style experience and catering overseen by a Michelin-trained chef. In the near future, we will be adding a 120-bed rehabilitation suite in Birmingham, and we can also arrange treatments in, and transportation to, one of our network of VAMED rehabilitation hospitals across Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic
