About Hobbs

Our Story

In 2005, neurological physiotherapists Helen Hobbs and Nicky Ellis set up Hobbs Rehabilitation and since has expanded rapidly offering an exceptional level of personalised skill and expertise. Operating from multiple locations across the south of England, with inpatient, outpatient and community settings, Hobbs Rehabilitation provides multidisciplinary therapy for neurological conditions where the individual is placed at the centre of care.

Our Mission

At Hobbs Rehabilitation our mission is to provide specialist neurological rehabilitation for adults and children, to contribute to educational resources for the development of clinical excellence and to participate in furthering the access to these at a national and strategic level.
